Autumn in Berlin, NH

October 27, 2015  •  1 Comment

That former mill town of Berlin, New Hampshire (pronounced without an accent on the last syllable) is a gateway to the North Country, as it is called. You can tell you cross an imaginary line when you go through here headed north in New Hampshire. These photos were taken on October 17 and you can see the foliage was running riot. And the weather was stormy. It left snow on the high peaks and there were snowflakes blowing in with the rain at times.

The previous six images were taken off Cates Hill. Berlin is built in a valley of the Androscoggin River. Houses and side streets run up the steep sides of the valley.

Another view looking down on the city of Berlin, this time from the  Holy Resurrection Russian Orthodox Church on Petrograd Street. Russian workers came here escaping the wars in Russia to work in the woods and mills. They joined the French Canadian lumberman and local New Englanders.

Berlin and Randolph are north of Mount Washington. The Presidential Range overshadows these surrounding towns. By Monday, the 19th, the storm had cleared leaving the higher peaks like this:
