Kancamagus Scenic Byway, New Hampshire – The Kancamagus Scenic Byway, located in New Hampshire, is considered one of the best scenic drives in the Northeast. It is about 35 miles long and was opened in 1959 after two dead end roads, one in Lincoln and the other in Conway, were connected.

This scenic road is known worldwide for it outstanding foliage during the autumn months. And though the scenic byway attracts the most visitors during the autumn months, I think it is a great area to explore any time of year. Photographers will have endless photo opportunities.

The Russell-Colbath House is a 19th-century historic house along the Kancamagus Highway in an area known as Passaconaway in Albany. Albany was first chartered in 1766 under the name Burton and then renamed Albany in 1833. This old house holds the fascinating story of Ruth Priscilla Russell: the grand old lady of Passaconaway. And it is the only original structure left of the Passaconaway settlement.

I am not sure it is possible to photograph all the attractions and viewpoints along the scenic byway in one day. And I recommend at least two days to photograph the entire byway.
