Summer I-95 Road Trip – New Hampshire

Read about my road trip >>>

Here I am in New Hampshire with its short coast line and beaches, ski mountains, Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast at 6,288 feet, and just 16 miles of Route 95.

Growing up in Massachusetts, the NH state liquor stores were also a destination especially around Christmas.  But my most vivid memory of NH, besides the beaches, is seeing protesters surrounding the Seabrook Nuclear Power plant when it was being built in the 1970s.  I recall that was quite a big deal.

There is one bridge.  I was over it a few years ago but don’t recall it very well.  It’s over the Piscataqua River and connects Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME.  From this photo, I think it’s iffy for me to drive over it so I’m going to call it Questionably Uncrossable.

 I’m now in my second favorite state, Maine.  And that’s the last state on my Imaginary Summer Road Trip.
