Destination: Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire
Back in the 1940s photographer Paul Strand took two pictures that capture the essence of northern New England. One photograph, "Susan Thompson, Cape Split Maine," shows a late-middle-aged woman standing perfectly still at the entrance of her barn. She stands, as if pausing in her work, with her worn hands resting ather sides and her wistful, rather tired eyes just averted from the camera. Susan Thompson has the composure of a person who has lived long and hard in a single place.
Susan Thompson is gone, and so, most likely, is the old farmhouse with the clean-swept side porch. But even today, you don't have to travel far off the interstates that knife through Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire before you run across people and houses and landscapes that are hauntingly similar to those of Paul Strand photographed 50 years ago. The serenity, the austere beauty, the reverence for humble objects, the unassuming pride in place, the deep connection between man and landscape -- all of these remain very much alive in Northern New England.
Seafood is king throughout New England. Clams, quahogs, lobster, and scrod are prepared here in a number of ways, some fancy and expensive, others simple and moderately priced. One of the best ways to enjoy seafood is in the rough -- off paper plates on a picnic table at a clamboil or clambake -- or at one of the many shacklike eating places along the coast, where you can smell the salt air.
At inland resorts and inns, traditional fare dominates many menus, although an increasing number of innovative chefs are bringing contemporary regional fare to the table. Among the quintessentially New England dishes are Indian pudding, clam chowder, fried clams, and cranberry anything. You can also find multicultural variations on themes, such as Portuguese chouriço (a spicy red sausage that transforms a clamboil into something heavenly) and the mincemeat pie made with pork in the traditions of the French Canadians who populate the northern regions.
National and State Parks and Forests
Many parks provide a variety of visitor facilities for enjoying the great outdoors, including campgrounds, picnic grounds, hiking trails, boating and ranger programs. State forests are usually somewhat less developed.
MAINE -- Acadia National Park, which preserves fine stretches of shoreline and high mountains, covers much of Mount Desert Island and more than half of Isle au Haut and Schoodic Point on the mainland.
VERMONT -- The 275,000-acre Green Mountain National Forest extends south from the center of the state to the Massachusettes border. Hikers treasure the miles of trails; canoeists work its white waters; and campers and anglers find plenty to keep them happy. Among the most popular spots are the Falls of Lana and Silver Lake near Middlebury; Hapgood Pond between Manchester and Peru; and Chittenden Brook near Rochester.
NEW HAMPSHIRE -- The White Mountain National Forest covers 770,000 acres of Northen New Hampshire. New Hampshire parklands vary widely, even within a region. Major recreation parks are at Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch, and Mt. Sunapee. Rhododendron State Park (near Fitzwilliam in the Monadnock region) has a singular collection of wild rhododendrons; Mt. Washington Park (White Mountains) is on top of the highest mountain in the Northeast.
