Today is a good day, as it marks the 100th anniversary of the White Mountain National Forest. Thanks to the Weeks Act, of 1911, New Hampshire has been able to preserve what is truly beautiful and unique to this great State. The establishment of the White Mountain National Forest has been recognized as one of the single greatest land conservation acts in United States History. Scores of mountains to hike, uncharted rivers to conquer and acres of wood to setup camps. I am proud to be from New Hampshire, and most of all, I am proud to be an American. Live Free or Die.
