There are more rocks than we residents of New Hampshire care to have. Each time we dig in our yards we hit more rocks, some small some large. Before houses can be built blasting takes place in many areas. I had to have that done to a house I had built years ago. I still had large rocks all around my yard that were too large and heavy to be taken away.
New Hampshire is known as the Granite State. Granite is our state rock. Besides granite NH is also home to other rocks, gems and minerals such as beryl and smoky quartz. Smoky quartz is the NH state gem.
There are plenty of places to go rock climbing or just walking on trails to find unusual and pretty rocks in New Hampshire. A trip to the mountains is one way to feel the freedom, smell the clean air, and see the beauty and majesty of New Hampshire. New Hampshire’s motto is LIVE FREE OR DIE!
While taking a walk today with my husband I snapped some photos of rocks we saw along the way. There is one particular rock that I find fascinating. It is shaped like a bear. See if you can spot the one that looks like a bear.
Here are some rocks that I thought were interesting enough to share.
In case you didn’t see the bear rock, here it is again!
You can actually see his nose and face on the left. This rock is a short walking distance away from my home. I always stop to look at it. I find it fascinating. Maybe one day it will be in one of my future books.

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the warmer weather when it comes! Well, it is getting better here – 40’s and 50’s instead of 20’s and 30’s. That’s a little improvement but still chilly.
