    Flume (Crawford Notch), Beaver Brook, Parasol...

    Parasol looked solid on Sunday when I drove by on my way home.

    Beaver Brook in Colebrook was coming in thick but still had a lot of running water on Sunday.

    Climbed the Flume in Crawford Notch on Saturday with the Mrs. and the dogs. The dogs followed up the side of the trail. First time swinging a pair of axes since I moved back east from Oregon. There was some ice to climb and a lot of running water. More of an adventure outing. The only real sustained 1-2 part was "in enough" for me. The little chasm up top was flowing. We had to bushwack to join up with the trail.

    The tracks across from the parking lot were coming in somewhat... Ice puberty at best.

    Happy climbing.

    Beaver Brook Falls are in Colebrook NH. Its in "the" northern New England ice guidebook, but the directions are wrong. The book says to travel north from Colebrook center on Rte 3, but actually from downtown Colebrook you take 145 north to Beaver Brook Falls Natural Area, which is basically a pull off and some picnic benches, and a big flow visible from the road. If you're heading south from Pittsburg NH you can pick up 145 as well. The falls are as roadside as it gets. They can be easily soloed.

    The Flume. Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

    Ask Ridgerunner what size hat he wears early in the season and he'll say "I'm not sure, I'm not in shape yet"

    I think two different "Flumes'es" are being spoken of? One in Crawford, near Silver Cascade... and the other by Ridge, in Franconia Crotch?

    Crawford notch next to silver. And nnot from
    NH. spent the last few years in the cascades not swinging an ice axe and not really familiar with local terrain. Sorry for the mix.
