White Mountain Images by Chris Whiton
People flock to the Western White Mountains great outdoors all year to enjoy our spectacular changing seasons. Flora displays alter with the seasons; some in overabundance in fields while other rare species exist in protected areas for generations of enjoyment. Match this beauty with the full spectrum of spectacular landscape, terrain and mountain cliffs and you have an idyllic setting for a vast choice of recreational opportunities, leisure activities for quiet get-a-ways, and the daring challenge of multi-level sporting areas.
Count the ways to enjoy the rush and thrill of the great outdoors in the Franconia Notch Region. Hike it, bike it, swim it, drive it, ski it, whatever the foot board of choice. Discover it, capture it, stay here and love it. Our outdoors encompasses miles and heights filled with magnificent waterfalls, lakes and streams, boulders and rock formations – all formed thousands of years ago during the Ice Ages.
Nature is full of fascinating stories that attract attention at a young age and keep us amazed throughout our entire lives. The forests of the Whites provide a habitat for wildlife ranging from spotted salamanders to black bear and moose, with no fewer than 184 species of birds to boot. The need to understand, participate and enjoy will draw you back to its generous beauty every season for any reason, again and again.
