20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Castle on The Hill

After a long drive from my hometown to the incredible mountains of New Hampshire, I stopped at a local gas station to fuel my tank before arriving at my destination. As I was getting back into my vehicle, I looked up and couldn't help but notice the only structure in sight amongst thousands of trees deep in the mountains. It looked like a castle on a hill. The trees had just begun to turn into the most vibrant Fall colors and I knew right then that this photo was one I could not avoid.
