Pawuckaway State Park Southern NH

From Blue Collar Blog...

Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham, NH features a popular summer camping spot. It is also is home to three of the most southern "mountain peaks." The quotes are there because at 1200 feet north mountain, the tallest of the three really doesn't qualify as a 'mountain,' but it's not a bad hiking hill. Along with South Mountain, Middle Mountain, and Round Pond, it's a nice spot particularly at off peak times.

Below is a pic of a turtle sunning himself at round pond. There is also rocking climbing/rock climbing training at Pawtuckaway, and not far from this spot.
