This weeks “Postcard of the Week” is a vintage “Chrome” postcard from circa mid 1960’s. The Kancamagus Highway or “Kanc” as it is affectionately know is 32 mile exceptionally beautiful road the connects Lincoln, NH to North Conway, NH. It offers spectacular views of the White Mountain National Forest. I’ve traveled this scenic byway many times and it always seems to thrill!
