In a place where stunning landscapes are all over the place, the view from Echo Lake in Conway, New Hampshire stands out. The small lake sits just below the stunning rock face of Cathedral Ledge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and is part of Echo Lake State Park, easily accessible from North Conway and a great place for a picnic, hike, or as I favored this week… a nice lazy kayaking adventure.

This is my view of Cathedral Ledge while paddling around Echo Lake:

About Echo Lake State Park in Conway, NH: “Echo Lake State Park is a great place to take the family for a swim and picnic. A scenic trail around the lake provides great views of sheer, 700-foot Cathedral Ledge which towers over the lake. A mile-long auto road and hiking trails lead to the top of Cathedral Ledge where views across the Saco River Valley to the White Mountains can be enjoyed. Both Cathedral and nearby White Horse ledges are popular rock and ice climbing walls.”
