This is my first in a series of five blog posts about my recent trip to New Hampshire, April 27-30, 2012.
New Hampshire is a beautiful state with hills, trees, water, wildlife, winding roads and granite outcroppings. New Hampshire is also a state with fiercely independent people. The state motto is Live Free or Die.
Here are two photos of some pretty NH scenery. Although NH is most famous for “foliage season” when the leaves are ablaze with Fall color, it is very pretty in the Spring, too.
We drove past the real Walden Pond (not pictured), made famous by Henry David Thoreau, across the border in Massachusetts. (Not to be confused with Golden Pond, made famous by actors Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda in their “golden” years .)
I can understand why Thoreau waxed eloquent about the virtues of living in such a beautiful setting.
