2003 Bartlett Fireman's T-shirt
Thorne Pond was not originally there; it was created to provide artificial snow for Attitash. It wasn't just left as a big puddle though; it was made into a conservation area that's actually quite decent. There are several marked walking trails, including one around the...

Crawford Notch Campground: out in the boonies.....
"Hey dad what kinda deer is that".... "that ain't no deer, that's a darn moose".That kind of summarizes the great type of experience we had at this backwoods (yet still near route 302) camp grounds. No pre-gridded campsites just wherever; no electric; relieve yourself in the...

Bartlett Village Market: Eating in?
Right up the street from the condos we found a little country style Market & Deli. Great for picking up those little things for eating in.

Glen Junction Restaurant: Great place for Breakfast!
The first sign of a great place to go is "how busy are they?" ... and if they're parking lot is nearly full, then I figure they MUST be good. Or in this case, one of the few places serving breakfast. LOL, the guys didn't want to wait the 30 minutes for a seat, so we went on...

Bear Notch Road
Have you noticed the traffic on Route 16 running through North Conway Village & Conway? Unless you intend to stop and shop along the way, it's no fun getting through the heavy traffic if you're trying to get over to the Kancamagus Highway. SOOoooo, there's a shortcut ... from Bartlett on Route 302 .... turn onto Bear Notch Road * and it will come out at the Kancamagus. It also has a couple of beautiful viewing points to stop at along the way.
Bear Notch Road may be closed in the winter.
