Camp Savta (Part 2 of 4)

Day 4:   We traveled to a completely different side of the White Mountains, about 1 1/2 hours away in New Hampshire.  Lost River Gorge is a magnificent nature preserve that via a series of steps, bridges and wooden pathways, cuts through a steep gorge that has rushing waterfalls and streams, many fun caves and secret passageways to explore.   My grown children have fond memories of this place from when they were small; we would visit Lost River Gorge on our frequent summer camping trips to the White Mountains way back in the 1990s.  This was the only activity I did with my grandchildren that was a repeat from last year’s visit, but they had so much fun last time I thought it was worth returning.

The kids are dwarfed by a weird rock formation known as The Hall of Ships

All those amazing stairs, walkways and bridges led to many different caverns and secret passageways

The famous Lemon Squeezer cave was closed due to flooding. You have to be verrrry skinny to go through it. They actually have a measuring gauge posted outside the cave with strict instructions not to attempt entry unless you can fit through the test gauge. A week later, many of the caves were closed for several weeks due to extreme flooding from Tropical Storm Irene, so we were lucky that we only missed this one cave.
