New Hampshire and the White Mountains

So, with Hudson smelling like a mix fresh burnt rubber and grease (skunk), we made our way eastward toward White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. We’d located a "first come first serve" campground within the NF, Russell’s Pond, tucked several miles from the interstate and close to a 1000’ up. We got settled in, explored the pond and campgrounds, made dinner and finished by a warm campfire.

Woke up the next morning to heavy winds, high 30º temps and rain. Spent the day exploring Lincoln, Woodstock and a great little town north of the White Mountains, Littleton, NH. In Littleton is a great local brewery, Schilling Beer Co., where we grabbed a pint and some comfort food, pizza.

Woke up the next morning to a nice dose of warm sunshine. It’s amazing how much something as simple as sunshine can brighten things up. That day we set out and on the Kangamagus Highway and found a great hike up Hedgehog Mountain. I’ll let the pictures tell you the rest…

Next stop, Mass and ME.
