The fifth and final day of my Five Days Of Foliage series. I hope you have enjoyed looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed taking these photos!
For my last installment of my foliage photos I chose one of my favorite parks, Mine Falls Park in Manchester, NH.
I didn’t get to stay very long. There is so much to see at Mine Falls and I missed the biggest attraction there; the dam.
The 325 acre park has a total of 6 miles of trails that follow the Nashua Canal Trail. There are also ball fields, soccer fields and a football field is adjacent to the park. When I got there at sunrise, the warm weather had mixed with the cold, damp weather from the evening creating some misty shots from the ball fields.
The name “Mine Falls” dates from the 18th century, when low-quality lead was supposedly mined from the island below the falls. It has come along since then.
There are two main entrances to the park. I would suggest parking by the entrance at Stadium Drive because there is more parking spaces and it is easier to get to. I parked at the entrance at Whipple St. There were much less parking spaces (about a dozen) and I had a hard time finding the street. In any event I did find the entrance eventually. I hope you enjoy the photos I took there!
I had visited Mine Falls previously in March of 2016. You can find the link to my original post above.
I enjoyed posting this series of photos and I think it is something I may do some other types of themed photo series in the future.
