Favorite thing: The North of New Hampshire means mountains. The Appalachians stretch in direction southwest to northeast. The dominating mountain region here are the White Mountains with the highest peaks to find in the Presidential Range (Mt. Washington, 6288 ft.). The mountains are by far not as spectacular as in the American West, Canada or in the Alps. However, they appear quite massive due to deeply shaped valleys - towns are set in quite low elevations.

When we visited in early October the skies were blue except for one rainy afternoon, foliage in full swing (see pics) and the air was crisp. No crowds.

Fondest memory: The blue water of Sawyer's pond with the white canoe, red leaves, blue sky. These colours!

The views from the top station of Wildcat gondola - Mt. Washington, the rolling hills towards the ocean (Maine).

Although no mountains - the small College town of Hanover, the Green that filled up with students at lunch time.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
