Newfound Lake – Paradise

I was on vacation 7/29 to 8/12. My mom, Aunt Mary Jane and I rented the cabin again at Newfound Lake. It is such a gorgeous spot! It is also next to the deepest part of the lake (around 160 feet – I believe). I grew up going to Newfound Lake – especially Wellington State Park (unfortunately – I haven’t been there for a couple years).

For as long as I can remember – I have loved The Ledges area of the lake – the tall granite ledges and narrow winding road. I have have always wanted to snap photos at road level – however, there are no pull overs. This summer – I made it a goal to get the photos. On Friday, August 10th – I achieved my goal. My friend, Pat Vaillancourt came to visit us, and I asked if she would do me a favor and drive me to the ledges and drop me off so I could take photos along the road and then pick me up. She was more than happy to oblige. Aunt MaryJane road “shotgun.”

It was the most perfect day of the vacation as well – no humidity or haze – crystal blue skies and only about 83 degrees. I walked along the road and snapped many photos. Pat and Aunt MaryJane drove on and turned around at the Hebron Country Store – so I had plenty of time to walk along the road for about a 1/2 mile. Luckily, it was also a Friday afternoon and not the weekend so traffic was light.

Below are some of my favorite shots of the walk along The Ledges.




I hope everyone has a great rest of the summer!

Debbie 🙂
