MOUNTAINS OF NEW ENGLAND

THE mountains of New England are its crowning glory, in a physical as well as a scenic sense. Like
the Alps in Switzerland, they are annually invaded by a great host of rest-seekers and nature-lovers,
and like their Swiss prototypes, their " season " nowadays is practically an all-the-year-round one.

The White and Eranconia ranges, situated in the northern part of New Hampshire, are unquestionably
among the world's most beautiful mountain systems, and their near neighbors, the Green Mountains of
Vermont, are scarcely less enchanting.

The White and Eranconia mountains, with their cloud-kissing peaks, deep, narrow gorges and valleys,
smiling lakelets, natural phenomena and far-reaching vistas, have a beauty that is wellnigh majestic. They
cover several hundred square miles of territory, and culminate in that grand and world-famous peak, Mt.
Washington, rising more than 6000 feet above the sea and affording a marvellous panoramic view of one
hundred miles' radius.

Whittier, Starr King, Samuel Adams Drake, and scores of other masters of descriptive writing have
vividly depicted, in poetry and prose, the beauty and mystery of the New Hampshire mountains, and to
these fine word-pictures, and to the special literature on the subject issued by the Boston & Maine Railroad,
the reader who is interested in the mountains and their history may well be referred.

The mountains have changed not, since the days when the pioneers cut the earlv trails through the
wilderness, for they are unchanging ; but the summer social life has undergone a most remarkable
transformation.

In place of the camps and primitive wayside inns of a half century ago, there are to-day million-dollar
palace hotels, with all the comforts and luxuries of urban life, and a ceaseless round of outdoor and indoor
activities, including driving, tramping, automobiling, bicycling, golf, tennis, theatricals, musicales, dances, and
a variety of other amusements.

Great vacation centres have been built up at Bethlehem, Bretton Woods, North Woodstock, Jefferson,
Holderness, and other places, whither thousands of rest-seekers and hay-fever victims, from merchant princes
to wage earners, repair each season. In a social way the mountains are thoroughly democratic, as mountains
should be, and there are hotel and boarding-house accommodations to suit all pocketbooks.

Massachusetts, with its Hoosac Mountains and its Berkshire Hills, also has a miniature mountain system
of its own that is yearly growing more popular with the vacation public; and the magnificent Adirondack
Mountains in New York, also reached by the Boston & Maine Railroad, have long been one of the
country's favorite sanatoriums.

Eor a complete relaxation of mind and body, there is no place quite comparable to the world's high places.
