This weekend, we headed to the Petticodiac area for a bit of an adventure in finding a few waterfalls along the Pollett River. Our trip lead us Elgin, a small village south of Petticodiac. In a fortunate pit-stop, we came across the Elgin Country Market and we were suprised to see this little hub of activity on a Saturday. Inside the market, it was neat to see a country general store, restaurant and music stage all in one. We stopped for a bite to eat of hamburgs and corn on the cob and Rebecca surely enjoyed our little rest-stop.
Later, we headed to the Pollett River, which follows highway 905, and found Gordon Falls just off the roadway. I couldn’t get over the great architecture of the 60 year old stone bridge overlooking the falls. The falls were small in height, but had quite a bit of flow in the river. After checking out for a bit and a few photos, we continued upstream to Gibson Brook Falls, which was a small but neat brook, amidst outcroppings of cliffs and forest. Rebecca had quite a good time playing among the rocks while Sheena and I took a few photos. I couldn’t help but notice all the swimming holes around the area, but the colder weather kept us from getting too wet.
