Beaver Brook – Appalachian Tail, New Hampshire
October History, White Mountains – October in the White Mountains is like no other month. With fall foliage peaking during this time of year, our mountain towns, hiking trails, and roadways are crowded with travelers interested in viewing the spectacular foliage. The foliage was excellent this year!
When it comes to White Mountains history, a number of interesting events took place in October. A Shawnee warrior indirectly linked to the White Mountains was killed, thousands of acres of land was granted, and lumber companies were formed. Included here are a few interesting events.
Tripoli Road (Autumn) – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Tripoli Road, White Mountains – The autumn foliage season is a great time to travel the backroads in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Being a photographer, I love exploring New Hampshire’s backroads because I always find interesting subject matter to photograph. And the history attached to some of these lonely dirt roads is amazing.
Completed in 1934, Tripoli Road for most of its length is an unpaved bumpy dirt road that connects Waterville Valley and Woodstock. It was built by the USFS (likely with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps) and named after the mill that was in the area, Tripoli Mill. Roadside camping is allowed at designated sites along Tripoli Road making this area very busy during the weekends and holidays.
