Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire! {New England Vacation}

After spending 5 days up in Maine, we headed over to Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire for some lake cottage fun!  We spent two nights in a cute little cabin near the water and had a great time!

We rented kayaks again (and I remembered my camera this time!!)...

We also headed up into White Mountain National Forest (which was only a short drive away) for a little hike (oooor what we thought was a little hike)!  We hikes to two mountain peaks (Mt. Flume and Mt. Liberty) and the mileage wasn't too bad - it was the vertical climb that was insane.  We were literally rock climbing for a good portion of the trail.  We had no idea it was going to be that vertical.  But once we made it to the peaks, it was totally worth it.  Awesome views for miles.

(Here's a view of the two peaks from down on the road!)

We made sure to get in a lot of lazy beach hangs (and duck visits?!) to make up for the crazy hike ;)

And to top it all off, there were beautiful sunsets, arcade games (!!), and delicious eats...

Lake Winnipesaukee is such a beautiful lake.  I wish it was a little closer to home so we could visit more often.  But regardless, we had a great couple of days there!

Up next: Woodstock, NY!
