On Sunday, January 31, 14 of us took a beautiful hike from Mead Base to Beebe Falls along the Bearcamp River Trail in Sandwich. The trail passed through some spectacular scenery with many giant boulders and shady hemlocks. We passed Cow Cave, famous for being the place where a cow owned by the Smith Farm was trapped for the winter. We quickly arrived at Beebe Falls, which is a real wonder this year. Earlier rain built the ice up dramatically, We were able to safely look and crawl behind the waterfall. We were adults at play. After going a little further to a building sized boulder in the woods, we headed back. The weather was great and all had a special day.
