LIVE FREE OR DIE! (The slogan for New Hampshire) We had a fun time driving into the state of New Hampshire. Green mountains surrounded us on both sides of the interstate. Magnificent clouds covered the green hills for miles. We stayed within Franconia Notch State Park at Lafayette Campground.

Yesterday it unfortunately rained all day and we had a hailstorm in the evening so we couldn't go on the auto road up to Mount Washington or do much of anything outside.
