The Flume Gorge, Lincoln, New Hampshire
"The Flume was discovered in 1808 by 93-year-old “Aunt” Jess Guernsey when she accidently came upon it while fishing. She had trouble convincing her family of the marvelous discovery, but eventually persuaded others to come and see for themselves. At that time, a huge egg-shaped boulder hung suspended between the walls. The rock was 10 feet (3m) high and 12 feet (3.6m) long.

I can see the sea. Onomichi-city is dear to me. I' ve returned here after five years' absence. As the train neared the sea, a lot of sooty small roofs spread like lanterns. I see the red tower of the Senko-ji temple. I? see…
