Fields of Lupine Festival, New Hampshire – If you are visiting the White Mountains region in the month of June and are looking for a location to photograph, the Fields of Lupine Festival in Sugar Hill should fit your needs. The Fields of Lupine Festival is held annually in the month of June and attracts visitors from around the world. Every year in June the fields of Sugar Hill are transformed into a mesmerizing display of purple lupine.

Even though the lupine fields look great during the first week of the festival, I find the last week of the event is the best time to photograph the lupine in bloom. Early in the morning is your best bet if you want to avoid the crowds and possibly have the fields to yourself. Be prepared to spend a few hours exploring the lupine fields.

No trip to Sugar Hill is complete without stopping by the picturesque Coffin Pond. The reflection of clouds in the pond is awesome early in the morning. This little roadside pond has a magical feel that I can't explain. I really enjoy taking in the view from the little vantage point (below) on Streeter Pond Road.

Sugar Hill is a small New England town worth visiting just to view the lupine fields. When in full bloom the lupine fields are breathtaking. More information and list of events that take place during the Fields of Lupine Festival see the Franconia Notch Chamber of Commerce website
