A River Runs Through It

Today’s image comes to us from Lincoln, NH.  This is the Pemigewasset River, also known as the Pemi, which runs through the White Mountain National Forest.  It originates at Profile Lake in Franconia and runs down through southern New Hampshire where it eventually merges with the Merrimack River into Massachusetts.  As with many rivers in northern New England, it’s full of rocks and boulders and lined with trees, providing unlimited photo opportunities throughout the year.

Although this shot was taken during a relatively dry period of time last summer, you can still get a sense for how much water flows through this part of the river.  I can only imagine what it must have looked like the past few days after Irene brought so much rain to the area.   Such a shame to see the damage that was done from this storm, and our thoughts are with everyone who was affected by it.
