Exploring: Franconia Notch State Park

It's finally warming up in New England after (what I'm told was) a mild winter. Spencer, Theo, and I headed an hour west to Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire on Saturday to do a little exploring. Since we had Theo with us, we couldn't go to Flume Gorge since they don't allow dogs there, which was disappointing but there's always next time! Instead we went to The Basin

It was absolutely beautiful there! There were lots of little waterfalls and pools, and the walk to The Basin itself was easy. We walked beyond the paved path around The Basin and found a trail to another larger waterfall that I didn't catch the name of. At first Theo was pretty anxious, I think he thought we were going to give him a bath, but he eventually calmed down and tried to jump in the water a couple times. 

I think Theo was quite moved by the natural beauty of The Basin...or maybe he was just tired from the hike. 

 I had to take a picture of this because it's the most green I've seen since September. I can't wait for more blooms and blossoms.

Spencer and I recently got Fitbits and according to mine, I climbed the equivalent of 47 flights of stairs. Not too shabby.

Days like this make me even more thankful to live in beautiful New England and I'm so thankful to have Spencer and Theo to explore with!
