  • Fishing

    I am no fan of fishing - have way too little patience for that :-) But I did see a lot of people doing this in the White Mountains. Naturally, the region is heaven for fishing. The clear and cold rivers and lakes are home to trouts for example. Fishing licenses are required and available online at www.nhfishandgame.com and at more than 275 license...

  • Hiking: Sawyer Pond

    We drove towards Crawford Notch. Unlike recommended we took (gravel) Sawyer River Rd. only about 2 miles, then parked the car. I suspected that the parking at the end of the road was fully occupied (I was right!) and so we decided to hike the remaining 2 miles to the start of the actual hiking trail. Only three or four cars passed us on the way, so...

  • Appalachian Trail

    As said before, the White Mountains are heaven for hikers. The famous Appalachian Trail crosses the White Mountains from Southwest to Northeast. The trail is well maintained but due to the high elevations the character of the White Mountains leg of the trail is quite different to that in other regions. Much of the Trail is above timberline, where...

  • Wildcat ZipRider

    If you're looking for a thrilling adventure then do the ZipRider - you're on a seat, hanging on a zip-line cable and riding down for a half mile at a speed of up to 45 mph ... it's fun. You won't enjoy the views on your first ride, so I recommend you repeat that experience.It has become quite expensive - the first ride is $20, additional rides $10....

  • Hiking: AMC Center Pinkham Notch

    Hiking is the favourite outdoor activity of most White Mountains visitors (except for the inevitable driving). An excellent place to start a hike is the Visitor Center of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) at Pinkham Notch. They provide meals in their restaurant, up-to-date trail information, educational offerings on the mountains and the Trading...

  • NASCAR in New Hampshire

    NASCAR rolls into New Hampshire twice a year - once in July and again in mid-September. New Hampshire International Speedway is... well... it ain't Daytona. It's a one mile flat track and not nearly as fast as many other NASCAR venues. Still, there's some great racing there, and one can plan a real nice trip around a race - as I did this fall...

  • Boating, swimming, kayaking...the works!

    Lake Winnepesaukee is our lake of choice in New Hampshire. We are so lucky to have friends with an old fashioned waterfront "camp". Not the slick kind of condo development or modern house...oh, no. This is what New Hampshire was really all about.

  • Climbing Mount Monadnock

    Mount Monadnock is located in the southwestern corner of the state. A "Monadnock" is a single rock peak above a plain that remains after the land around it has been worn away by glaciers". Mt. Monadnock appears huge because it stands alone above the farmland.The towns in this area are small and spread far apart. It's quite quaint with farms,...

  • Winter Sports in New Hampshire

    Although I myself am not fond of winter sports, I find it great that the state encourages, and resorts provide opportunities for those who do enjoy winter sports. nowmobile rentals are available at most resorts in the northern part of the state. In addition, snowmobile tours from one-hour jaunts up to a 120 mile Great Woods North Tour is offered at...

  • Walk the Fairways that Celebrities...

    While at The Mount Washington Hotel, Allan and I played 18 holes of golf. It was just spectacular. We played on the Par 71 Mount Washington Course. It was such fun to play a course that was built in 1915 and has hosted four New Hampshire Opens! I must admit that it was a challenging course, and the magnificent setting nestled in the Ammonoosuc...
