February History, White Mountains – The history of the New Hampshire White Mountains can be looked at from many different perspectives. One of the more interesting ways to look at it is from a monthly viewpoint.
From a historical point of view, February is a deadly month in the White Mountains. Throughout the years, avalanches, climbing falls, hypothermia, and skiing accidents have taken a number of lives during this month. Most of these incidents have been well documented, so below are a few not so well known events that happened during the month of February.

Scenic Backroads, White Mountains – I have been traveling the backroads of New Hampshire for many years, and always find interesting subject matter along them to photograph. From a photographer's viewpoint, I find autumn to be the best time to explore them. And the history attached to some of these roads is amazing.
Many of the backroads in the White Mountains are one lane dirt roads, and some such as Sandwich Notch Road are very rough, and only high clearance vehicles should attempt to drive these roads. Because not everyone is interested in hiking to a scenic location, here are a few backroads that are worth exploring.
