Evans Escapades in New Hampshire and Vermont–It Was a Long Day


We decided with our time constraints of needing to be back in Texas in a few weeks,
and ALL the THINGS left to see and do between here and there,
that the best way to get a quick peek at New Hampshire and Vermont
would be to just do a day trip from where we had the motorhome
parked at our Thousand Trails Park in Wells Maine. . .

400 miles, and 12 hours (not all driving time) later
we can tell you beyond the shadow of a doubt. . .
New Hampshire and Vermont are beautiful,
and at some point, we must come back and explore further. . .
New Hampshire State House, New Hampshire Capitol Building, Concord New Hampshire, David, Janice
first stop. . .the New Hampshire State House in Concord New Hampshire. . .
Vermont State House, Vermont State Capitol Building, Montpelier Vermont, David, Janice
second stop. . .VERMONT State House in Montpelier Vermont. . .
Driving Tour, New Hampshire, Vermont, Scenic Views, White Mountain Range
an hour and a half drive between the two. . .miles of beautiful scenery. . .

lent itself to the beauty. . .
Tour of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory
but absolutely no trip to Vermont would be complete with a tour Ben and Jerry’s. . .right?
Tour of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory - Sample - Steven Cobert
and the samples. . .yum!

A friend on FB said this sample looked like manna from heaven. . .
to which I replied. . .it is just like manna. . .’cause I no longer keep it on hand,
I hafta go out and collect it every time I want some. . .

and of course, you must go check out the FLAVOR GRAVEYARD. . .

Kancamagus Scenic Byway, Overlooks, Waterfalls, Hikes, Sign Post
The Kancamagus Scenic Byway (say that three times fast)
was highly recommended by a friend of the family. . .
we like to have NEVER found it. . .good grief. . .

I left the map at home (go figure) so we asked a couple of people. . .
seriously, they gave us that deer in the headlight look,
as if they had never heard of it. . .finally, a sweet little teenage boy
at the diner where we had lunch explained where we needed to go. . .

and oh boy. . .wow. . .

so, so beautiful. . .pics can’t do it justice. . .
you gotta go see it for yourself. . .

Not wanting to be out after dark,
we missed a lot of opportunities and adventures
of the Scenic Byway. . .so we must return at some point. . .

If you are in the area. . .check it out. . .
and show us what we missed. . .

‘til next time,
