Our first diversion took us to Prospect Falls. Located just outside of the village of Prospect. I opted to just slip down along the bridge and move along the river. The snow was all gone but there was still some neat ice flows along the amazing rock formations. The falls itself is very difficult to navigate to, having been there last autumn, I opted to stay close to the bridge area. (I included a photo I took last year so you can see what the falls area looks like) A word of warning if you try this little hike, as the descent into the gorge can be tricky with much loose rock and poor footing, also much of the adjoining property is posted.

Our next stop was off Rt8 in Wells to try and get a closer look at the Auger Falls. We parked on a side road at an entrance to a snow mobile trail.

An old log cabin and pretty forests with much moss and ferns were the highlights this day.
