Profile Falls

by Kimberly J Tilley

In August 2013 we went to Profile Falls, located in Bristol New Hampshire. The waterfall is named for a shadow effect that you can sometimes see on the right side of the waterfall.

This is a local swimming hole and there were a few bathers to work around. If you are going in for a dip, you have to be careful as there are a lot of rocks in the water. Yes the water is cold. To me it felt colder then the ocean is these days. The river also has a strong current. Boating and hiking is done at the park and in the winter there is a snowmobile trail.

Across the road from the waterfall is the boating launch site, where there is a small meadow and a view of the surrounding mountains. You can find butterflies, caterpillars, snakes and spiders here. There is plenty of flowers and plants to see at the park.

Now, I was not looking to photograph the profile, but stare at the pictures all you want to try and see the profile. 🙂
