    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While traveling through northern New Hampshire with her mom, Brenda Olson captured video of the scenic Kancamagus Highway near Lincoln, New Hampshire. Near this area, which lies at the foot of Loon Mountain, you can see the Swift River, a 26 mile stretch of water that flows into Maine’s Saco River and empties out into the Atlantic Ocean. “The Swift River is special to me because I have been traveling to the Kancamagus Highway since I was a little girl,” she said. “We have enjoyed swimming in the several ‘pools’ located along the river and have caught little minnows and other fish. The scenery is breathtaking.”
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    One of the most picturesque rivers in New Hampshire is the SWIFT RIVER located along the Kancamagus Highway. The river travels over 25 miles and offers many natural swimming holes. The water is ice cold, but there is nothing like a quick dip in the Swift River on a hot, steaming, New Hampshire day!

    This short video was taken on June 11th at Loon Mountain.
