Lesson 760 – Man, what a state!

I often write about what it is like to live here in New Hampshire (spoiler alert – cold in the winter.) But this weekend, as I attended a conference up north (about 2.5 hours where I live) these are some of the images that remind me *exactly* why it is I continue to live in this great state.

So forgive me this morning, as I go on (and on) about that which is New Hampshire, but I think you might end up agreeing we me that it’s a beautiful place to live.

This is the historic Mount Washington Hotel now called the Omni Mount Washington Resort. Many years ago, those families with money to spare used to send sick family members here for the invigorating mountain air. I’m not sure it cured many infections but I am quite certain it calmed many souls.

On the drive up, I met this handsome fellow. At first I thought he was a young coyote, he was that large. Silly me, he was just a sly fox as interested in me as I was of him.

There was a little bit of snow on the grounds at my hotel –

But it was forgivable when we were treated to a view like this:

And then not more than 5 minutes up the road, this was the view I was treated to of the Presidential Range:

And this of Mount Washington:

Nope, not going to be leaving this state anytime soon.

  1. Jenn

    Thank you for posting these pictures. It does my heart good to see them!❤

    I grew up in Haverhill (NH, not MA) and I know the White Mountains very well. I havent been home since Christmas and we just got word that, this fall, the Navy is moving us even further south than we are now.😦

    4 more years until my husband retires. I cant WAIT to go home!

  2. I agree with you. I was born and raised here. Moved away when I was first married. When it came time for my children to start school my husband and I both decided that New Hampshire is where we would settle and raise them. He is from New England but not New Hampshire; he calls it the best move he ever made. I love the changing seasons, beautiful country side, the urban activities and the suburban living. I Love It Here.

  3. I loved my years living in New Hampshire and miss it a lot now that I’m in very flat Kansas.
