New Hampshire


New Hampshire comprises 9304 sq miles, and is sometimes called the ‘mother of rivers’ since five of the great New England rivers originate in its hills. The state has 1300 lakes or ponds and 40 rivers, totaling more than 40, 000 miles. It boasts the most impressive mountains in New England, with 48 peaks reaching over 4000ft, the highest of which is famed Mt Washington.

The climate of New Hampshire is usually similar to that of the rest of New England, with the exception of the mountain peaks, where conditions are notoriously volatile and can be severe, even when the weather in the lowlands is fine.
