Fun in New Hampshire Part One

Here is part one in all of our fun times in New Hampshire, both Jake & I really loved New Hampshire although it was totally different than Maine, it was really fun and so BEAUTIFUL in a different way! We got to experience lots of different things while we were there from mountains to a different kind of water than we saw in Maine and also a train ride and so much gorgeous fall colors and really cool covered bridges and yummy local food. I decided to do this first post about New Hampshire with all of our pictures of us at different places and locations and such. And part two of the New Hampshire post is going to be all about the fall colors and beautiful trees and such. We took so many pictures of all the pretty trees and leaves and the beautiful atmosphere we got to experience in New Hampshire so I am going to do all that kind of stuff in the next post. There are just far too many pictures to post in one post, sorry!

Aunt Sally & I at one of the National Parks in New Hampshire, it was so beautiful.

Aunt Sally, Jake, & I in New Hampshire with the mountains and gorgeous colors all behind us.

While we there we saw these signs everywhere, they were pretty serious about this moose thing. Jake & I wanted to see a moose somewhere so bad, but it never happened so sad :( oh well...

Here is the Conway Scenic Railroad that we road on through the mountains in New Hampshire

These are the actual cars we rode in on the train

I LOVED all of the cool covered bridges we got to see in New Hampshire. This particular one was in Jackson, New Hampshire, everything around it was completely beautiful, feels like you are in a movie, reminded me of one of my favorites, Baby Boom. There was water beneath and such pretty trees and fall colors everywhere around it, it was just PERFECT!

This was our lunch train stop in Crawford, New Hampshire, it was very cold that day as we sat outside to eat our lunch and admire the scenery.

This neat little landscaping thing was in Jackson, New Hampshire near the covered bridge on a center median thing, it was so creative and cool. It was very obvious that they really go all out for the different seasons up in New England, even for road decor haha, we don't have that here in the south, I LOVED IT up there!

LOVE this perfect picture of the train coming toward us, this is where they let us get out before we stopped for lunch and stretch our legs and get some good pictures of the train and all the pretty scenery we were surrounded by. While we were all doing that they would back the train up and come toward to pick us up so we could see the train backing up and then see from the front coming toward us, it was so neat to see since neither of us had ever ridden on a real train like this!

Jake & I in a random spot we found that was SO PERFECT for good pictures, it had the greatest yellow leaves with birch trees everywhere, it was just gorgeous we had to stop and get some good pictures!

Jake & I outside one of the visitors centers we stopped at in New Hampshire to look at the mountain view with all the pretty trees and fall colors and take some great pictures!

Another great photo opportunity, this one particular spot had alot of oranges and reds. It really was neat to get to see and experience all the different colors from state to state and even all the different we went seemed to have a different range of colors and leaves.

This is me while we were at the visitors center in New Hampshire to take pictures and look at the great views, it was such an awesome view through those viewfinders, cannot even explain the beauty!

This was outside Polly's Pancake Parlor which was an old place that made any pancake, made to order, from regular to pecan to coconut to chocolate chip, really any kind of pancake. I loved it so much, I love pancakes, but they had this cute little horse outside of the restaurant so I took my picture on it haha.

This sign was for a lodging place that I just thought was neat looking, it looked very christmas like with the horse and the sleigh, I just had to take a picture of it.
 Sorry about this car in the picture, but I have such a love for old, white churches like this and they were EVERYWHERE up in new england, I wanted to get out and take pictures of every single I saw, but I refrained. This particular one was in New Hampshire and I took this picture from the car with the window down so that is why the car is in the picture, I wasn't able to get around it.

Here is the sign out front at Polly's Pancake Parlor with gorgeous scenery surrounding it of course...

And this is the actual restaurant of Polly's Pancake Parlor, it was so old and neat in the inside.

This was the entrance sign of the resort that we stayed at in New Hampshire, it was a really neat area, very secluded, near the mountains, it really felt like you were the only one staying there!
This was taken when we were off of the train stretching our legs and taking pictures of all the scenery while they backed up the train and we were able to get a good picture of the back of the train with the conductor waving, SO NEAT!!
