    We visited poet Robert Frost's house near Franconia, in the Green Mountains. The house's mailbox still has the word 'Frost' written on it! We were in New Hampshire just as the New England fall was looking splendid!

    We also went down the scenic Connecticut valley in New Hampshire.

    I kind of thought about all the politicians trudging in the snows of NH once every 4 years during primary season... :)

    I loved my visit to NH! So beautiful. Same with Vermont and Maine.

    We went to Vermont also; didn't make it to Maine, though.

    Although Vermont's Green Mountains are high, I think New Hamphire's White Mountains are slightly higher.

    Yes, well the boundaries of Vermont, NH and Maine are quite close to the north; VT and NH sort of narrow in their shape.

    (If you're not careful, you could even end up in Canada...)

    *Jane flashes back to her multi-hour tour of Canada that some how ended up being between North Carolina and Colorado* For the record, I was not the one driving then!

    Well, I guess the 1-95 does run through a lot of states...

    PS: We ate at a restaurant in a New Hampshire town, and on the wall was a photo of the smiling face of Newt Gingrich. (Looking for endorsements in primary season, no doubt...)

    It's possible to "do" a number of New England states all in one trip, although really to get to know even one of them really well can take a lot time. Although I do admit to liking Montana a great deal, New England scores highly also...

    Oh Montana mountains!!!! So gorgeous!
    A versa different type of gorgeous than New England mountains, granted. They both have their appeal.

    NEW HAMPSHIRE, by TS Eliot:

    "Children's voices in the orchard
    Between the blossom- and the fruit-time:
    Golden head, crimson head,
    Between the green tip and the root.
    Black wing, brown wing, hover over;
    Twenty years and the spring is over;
    To-day grieves, to-morrow grieves,
    Cover me over, light-in-leaves;
    Golden head, black wing,
    Cling, swing,
    Spring, sing,
    Swing up into the apple-tree."

    I guess numbers go up and down.

    I think you would like New Hampshire - especially the rural parts with wide open spaces, the White Mountains, etc.

    I'm sure I would too. I love the mountains, but I haven't been able to get to them in my area.

    The Connecticut Valley runs along the boundaries of New Hampshire and Vermont, close to the White Mountains. Worth a visit! :)
