It was too early for foliage but still nice to be there and drive through. Made a few stops to check the sights out. All in all a good day.

The Franconia Notch is a natural wonder and absolutely beautiful! The trees and water add to make a perfectly peaceful place to explore.

There are many great trails that start and finish here. I hiked with a school group from Crawford Notch to Franconia Notch, staying in the AMC huts. Well worth the visit.

Apparently there was a big deal made of whether or not to build the Parkway, as it would spoil the Notch. I can perfectly well understand their concern. This is an absolutely beautiful part of the world, nicer than Kancamagus, by far, In my opinion.

Nice area of NH - great countryside with views of streams, rivers and surrounded by mountain ranges. Make you way up near Sunset Inn (Sigar Hill) for great panoramic view of ranges.
