Hi to all!
Here are the new group activities discussed at the Mom's Meeting last Monday night.
Monday July 13th Group Hike to Sabbaday Falls and Planting a Letterbox @ 1:00pm
The group did this hike 3 summers ago and we really enjoyed it! It is a nice one for little ones because it is pretty short and ends at a beautiful waterfall! It is posted as a no swimming area but it is easy to spend a lot of time there watching the water make its way through the falls and into the pools. We are also going to attempt to "plant" a letterbox! This is something our group has been talking about doing for several years. This will be a good spot because it is not that far into the falls so it will be easy for us to check on the box periodically. If you are not familiar with letterboxing this would be a great time come along and find out all about it! Here are a couple of sites on letterboxing too.
Letterboxing North America
Atlas Quest Letterboxing
We will be meeting in the parking lot of the Ranger Station at the beginning of the Kancamagus Highway at 1:00pm because several of us need to purchase National Forest parking passes ($20 for one or $25 for two if anyone wants to go in together on these and they are good for a whole year!). There are also lots of informational brochures and maps on the National Forest there! We will then proceed together to the trail head (about 15 miles).
You will not need anything for the letterbox (unless you want to bring your own personal stamps) but don't forget a snack and some water!
