Take This Road Trip To The 3 Most Eye-Popping Lupine Fields In New Hampshire
New Hampshirites wait eagerly for spring and then, of course, summer. There are a few signs we’ve come to look for that give us hope that cold weather and snow are on their way out. First, we start experiencing a few warm days. Then those warmer days become more common until we have a string of them to enjoy. In addition to rising temps, we’ve also come to look for lupines. These beautiful purple flowers can be found in the most unlikely spots along the roadside, but there are also a few go-to areas that we like to visit to see them en masse. This short road trip, which is really more of a car ride, through Sugar Hill will take you to a few of our favorites.
