The Kancamagus Highway is one of the most scenic and breathtaking byways in all of North America, stretching through the heart of New Hampshire’s majestic White Mountain National Forest, and obediently delivering its tourist-laden contents into the kitschy ski resorts around bustling North Conway. The twisting, snaking road built upon the well-worn footpaths of natives long since displaced, scampers around and through the unpredictable rolling hills, valleys and stately mountains, and can be a challenge for any unprepared or inexperienced motorist. In the fall, the leaf-peepers, highlighted by garrisons of old entitled women in floppy hats accompanied by their slow, overweight husbands, clog the popular artery, dodging the occasional exasperated deer or moose, to absorb the fragrance, crisp color and beauty honored, worshipped and revered by generations.
