Driving the Governor John Wentworth Highway

Look up and around to take in all the views on the highway.

Look up and around to take in all the views on the highway.

The first part of Route 109 is like stepping back to rural New Hampshire the way it was. A rolling road often edges with old fieldstone walls that still mark the boundaries of farmland. In the winter, a blanket of snow hides the hay or corn that was raised here, but the broken vistas of farmland, forest and fine old homes are far removed from the more commercial side of the world.

A steep turn marks a fork in the road; turning right keeps you on track towards the lakeshore, and a long twisting road that follows some forgotten trail laid down centuries ago, passing mere feet from some old farmhouses that are strung out like pearls on a string.
