“Rusticating”? It’s an old-fashioned word people once used when they were headed out on vacation to the pure outdoors: deep green forests, lake waves slapping beached driftwood; wildflowers nodding in the sun. Outdoor places with no sounds other than nature going about its business are as fresh as always. Among them is the Great North Woods of New Hampshire, featured in the first episode of a 12-part series of programs on wilderness vacations presented by Explore New England. Meet the people who host generations of families at rough-hewn lodges in New England’s deep regions of forests and lakes. Hear about the trout fishing, lake swimming, bonfires, and hearty breakfasts in places that city lights cannot find and the stars carpet the night sky.
