The 3,500-foot Mount Chocorua is one of the most frequently photographed mountains in the world according to the “AMC White Mountain Guide”.
It is certainly beautiful. On a clear day and binoculars, you can catch a glimpse of Mount Wachusett, about 100 miles south in Westminster, Ma. To the west you can see Vermont and 20-plus miles off, Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range dominate the view.
The wind-whipped peaks that tower above the tree-filled valleys of the White Mountain National Forest have been a symbol of wild America since well before the first New England colonies were established. If you turn over a quarter in your pocket , you may now see Mt. Chocorua. New Hampshire’s Mount Chocorua is the latest addition to the U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
And if you are really craving the wild west there is even an authentic Kokopelli store nearby on Route 16.
