Photographic Impressions of New Hampshire

My previous post included several photographic impressions of Vermont and I figured I might as well write a post with a bunch of photographic impressions of New Hampshire as well.

Although I currently live in Vermont, New Hampshire isn’t far away. I live practically on the border between the two states, in a region known as the Upper Valley. New Hampshire and Vermont have some similarities, yet they’re distinctly different states. While Vermont is a rural and peaceful state with rolling farmlands and mountains, New Hampshire is both very mountainous and at the same time more urban—there are more cities, in other words.

New Hampshire’s home to the White Mountains, a spectacular mountain range that occupies about a quarter of the state’s surface area. Attractions are plenty in this region, as you will see in the pictures below. Unlike Vermont, New Hampshire has a coastline, albeit a short one. This is where Portsmouth is located, a gorgeous historic coastal town.

New Hampshire is also home to numerous maple sugar houses, covered bridges and pretty villages too. Some towns in the White Mountains are extremely touristy though—North Conway is a perfect example of that.

Because this post is meant to be all about the pictures, I’d like to refer to the following blog posts for more textual information on New Hampshire and its attractions, nature and towns:
