New Hampshire's North Country: Travel Video Postcard: We are notorious off season travelers, and we found ourselves, post Thanksgiving pre Christmas. In New Hampshire's North Country...the towns that gather in the northwest foothills of the White Moutains, just east of the Vermont border.
Yes it was a bit bleak, but just a few-miles from our comfortable stay at the Sunset Hill House, in Sugar Hill, turns out it was the perfect time for the Rocks Christmas Tree Farm, in.....Bethlehem NH..( http://www.therocks.org/).where families scoured the hillsides in search of the perfect tree.
Or hitched a wagon ride with these beauties (handsome dark work horses)..who made the rounds every 15 minutes or so. And inside the big barn at The Rocks, there were all kinds of handmade creations to explore, warm coca or cider to drink, even a basket weaving demonstration. It's a great meditation. But the high point for me was probably watching a delicious batch of Kingdom Kernels kettle corn, pop to life....plump, light, and with a perfect balance of salt and sweet. The best!
