New Hampshire Covered Bridge
I was talking to these people about their adventure. They went out the night before, snowshoed in a mile and a half and snow camped for the night. They said it was a little cold but worth the experience.
I thought I would take a late afternoon trip to Stark New Hampshire. Even though it was in the low 20s and my fingers were cold, It was worth the trip.
