New Hampshire contains an extraordinary number of lakes, rivers, marshes and mountains, including the White Mountain Range; Lake Winnipesaukee, among the largest in-state lakes in the nation; Grand Monadnock, with a six-state view; Great Bay, one of the largest seacoast tidal inlets anywhere; the gorgeous gorges of Franconia and Crawford Notches.
