Thirteen Mile Woods, NH

photo of Thirteen Mile Woods, NHRoute 16 in New Hampshire starts off as a fairly scenic road heading out of Portsmouth, but eventually becomes a somewhat ugly commercial strip as it passes through the eastern edge of Central New Hampshire. But as it approaches the White Mountains, it becomes quite beautiful, with particularly stunning scenery as it passes Mount Washington on the left. Relatively few tourists go beyond this point, however, which is a shame, because the upper stretch of Route 16 has some of the most incredible scenery in all of New England. One part of this stretch goes through the Thirteen Mile Woods, a remote region of waterways, spruce and fir forests, and low hills. The photo shown here, which was taken in late September of 2004, shows the breathtaking beauty of this area.
