New Hampshire Waterfalls

New Hampshire waterfalls are truly spectacular. New Hampshire is known for its beautiful wilderness and nothing quite beats a waterfall on a cool fall day. There are big waterfalls and small waterfalls, waterfalls that take hours to hike to and others that take just minutes, there are plunges and there are cascades.
