I first encountered the Gibbs Brook Falls on my very first hike through the Presidential Range many years ago. Since then I have photographed this modest and forever-changing cataract many times — first in 35mm, then with my 4×5 view camera, and several times with digital gear. I think I’ve captured this spot is all 4 seasons as well. This latest rendition was made on July 27 while hiking with my 10 year old daughter.
After 2 nights of delightful camping at Russell Pond in the Waterville Valley region of the White Mountains, we switched gears and bedded down for a few comfortable nights at the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) Highland Center Lodge. Opened just a few years ago on the site of the historic Crawford House hotel, the lodge offers year round access to some of the finest hiking and cross country skiing trails in New England. Visit with your family, a friend, or on your own, and take a course in map and compass navigation, intro to backpacking, mountain ecology or snowshoeing.
