Fall in the White Mountains

Evans Notch is a less-visited part of the White Mountain National Forest. There are no 4,000 ft. peaks, huge expansive vistas, nor direct access to the Appalachian Trail (AT). And it is in Maine. In the winter, the road is not maintained, that is, not plowed.

The ledges of East Royce are in the background.

The panoramic view almost at the height of land. See South Baldface on the right. You may notice that this area is less well maintained too. In recent years, locations like this viewpoint have been left to brush growing up and the picnic tables and signs have been removed.

I return to this place again and again over the years. It is often quiet, always beautiful. It is a little melancholic to see it in disrepair whilst access is restricted in places by parking pass requirements. I'll still enjoy it.

Soon I plan on posting another post on the red leaves of autumn, but this year the reds have held on so long I am waiting to see what else turns up.
