Good Morning from the Granite State,

There is plenty of granite to be seen in New Hampshire and what can’t be seen will found when one attempts to plant a garden. Recently I heard of an outcropping of white stone in nearby Temple, New Hampshire. With the help of a few folks on Facebook and a passing motorist, I found White Ledges on Kendall Road.

It is a short hike along a beautiful tree lined road next to field to the Ledges. I was told to be underwhelmed but the walk was delighful and I saw a number of people walking their dogs.

Nice walk, no black flies biting, but I did see them fluttering around

I’m guessing that the rock is smoky quartz with a touch of rose quartz. It covered an extensive area and is clearly visible on a satellite view on Google mapssatellite view on Google maps
