Day 24, Thurs, Sept 25, Laconia to Conway, NH

This is Chocorua Lake with famous Mount Chocorua in the distance. This is one of the most photographed mountain peaks in New Hampshire. We were northbound on NH Rt 16 heading towards Conway when we came upon this splendid scene!

Along the same side road we drove down to pick apples was this log home, tucked there in the New Hampshire woodland. This is so typical of the many,many homes we see as we drive through rural New England.

Thursday morning we took our journey south from Laconia along State Rt 11, planning to drive around to the east side of Lake Winnipisaukee, then north toward the White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. Just south of Laconia we noticed a sign saying "Apples U-Pick." A short distance down a side road we found this apple orchard and were given a 1/2 peck size sack and permitted to pick apples off the trees, getting a dollar off the regular price for our efforts.
