New Hampshire-2011

I started my blog about 3 years ago with the intent to at least try to write something everyday! Hah! I didn’t realize how much life gets in the way of things. Well, I’m going to try and do better and continue what I started. I think my last entry about my photography was 2010 and my experience in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This one is about autumn in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.

My husband had wanted to visit the east for autumn. We’ve heard through television, over the internet, books and magazines how beautiful the east is autumn. We were always kind of biased and thought Ohio has some pretty beautiful autumns. So at first we were skeptical. That was until we saw the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

I never saw so many hues and shades of orange, red, yellows, and yes even browns. I never created so many photographs and I fell in love with the area instantly. If you plan on visited the Whites, I recommend starting in Lincoln, New Hampshire. That’s where the White Mountain National Forest Visitor Center is located and where The Kancamagus Highway begins. The “Kanc” winds it way through the White Mountains and ends at Conway, New Hampshire, not to far from the New Hampshire/Maine border. Along the way you’ll discover overlooks, waterfalls, short hikes and long hikes. 

I highly recommend visiting New Hampshire in the autumn. It is a spectacular area to see what North America has to offer in autumn color.

  1. The colours are so inetense, they almost hurt. Too bad it only lasts a short while before our environment takes on different shades between white and black. (Yes, I purposely avoided “50 shades of…”)
