Road Trippin – The Kancamangus Highway

The Kancamangus Highway is a 32 mile scenic byway through the White Mountain National Forest. I traversed it last week to take photos of bridges in Albany and Conway, NH. As it passes through the mountains, there are several spots to stop to enjoy the view.

The road is dotted with trailheads for hiking excursions and there are several campgrounds on either side of the mountains.

The Russell-Colbath House is only remaining original homestead in the area. In addition to the house, there is an interpretive trail explaining the history of the logging industry in the area.

This is the Swift River which forms the Rocky Gorge below.

    What a beautiful area this is. I really like the first photo with the clouds over the mountains. Thirty-two miles of scenery like this must be wonderful.

      Thank you. I haven’t camped here but did cross most of the Presidential Range using the hut system through the White Mountains. That’s an interesting experience but much of it is above the tree line.

        The huts are interesting. I’m going to be away from home for a few days. When I return, I’ll see if I can find the photos. They are from before I started studyiing photography, so I need to see if they are salvageable or if I need to find some photos on the internet that I can us.

        I am looking forward to learning more about them. It is probably a great feeling to see how much you have learned and the impact it has on the photos you take. I love reflecting on the “before” and “after”

    That is just gorgeous! When we are finally able to travel again, I hope to visit New England. It’s been on my “must do” list for a long time. So far, all I’ve managed is a weekend in Boston (my husband was there on business) which was fun, but I really want to get out in the countryside!
