Kancamagus Scenic Byway – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Snow, White Mountains Weather – During the winter months, the New Hampshire White Mountains come to life. Skiers take to the ski resorts, snowmobilers ride the hundreds of miles of groomed trails, and hikers explore the snow-covered trails. Winters that produce lots of snow are good for the New Hampshire economy (tourism industry), while the winters that have little snowfall can be detrimental to the local economy.
My favorite time of year to shoot in the White Mountains is during the winter season. When covered in snow the landscape of the White Mountains is transformed into a peaceful winter wonderland. Included in this blog article are a few snow scenes that showcase the winter season.
Presidential Range from Cherry Pond – Pondicherry, New Hampshire
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. The main attraction is Cherry Pond, which can be reached by hiking the Pondicherry Rail Trail for 1.5 miles from the designated parking lot on Airport Road (Hazen Road) in Whitefield.
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.
