Gale River Road – Bethlehem, New Hampshire
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.
Established in 1801 – Sandwich Notch Road, New Hampshire
Sandwich Notch Road, New Hampshire – This blog article is written in two parts and focuses on Sandwich Notch in New Hampshire. Today, I will show you the scenic Sandwich Notch Road (Notch Road). And part 2 will be a visual journey of the nineteenth century hill farming community that once was along the Notch Road.
During the early nineteenth century, thirty to forty families lived in the Notch. By 1860 only eight families lived in the Notch and by the turn of the twentieth century only one person, Moses Hall, lived in the Notch year around. Now a private residence the Hall Place is the only house left on the Notch Road.
