Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge, New Hampshire – Designated a National Natural Landmark in 1974 by the National Park Service, Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge is located in the towns of Jefferson and Whitefield, New Hampshire.

Pondicherry has a little something for everyone to enjoy. You will find interesting forest scenes and wetlands that can be easily explored and photographed. And the area is a major hang out for bird watchers. As a photographer, I find something interesting to photograph every visit.

Waterfalls, White Mountains – The White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire is not known for giant waterfalls, but the ones in the region make excellent photography subjects and are fun to explore. They also play an important role in New Hampshire's travel & tourism. Many tourists come to the White Mountains region only to visit the waterfalls.

I am not sure I could pick a  favorite waterfall in the White Mountain National Forest because I enjoy exploring and photographing all of them. I am partial to waterfalls the are off the beaten path such as Ellens Falls, Lafayette Brook Falls, The Other Pitcher Falls, Willey Brook Falls and the many secluded unnamed cascades scattered throughout the region. It is truly is amazing how many "forgotten" waterfalls are in the region.
