Tier 2 (Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee): Capture one of the above photographs and answer one of the two sets of questions below:

What is the previous owners' family name of this sprawling 1800 acres? What is the connection between the name of the open summit mountain and the family's primary business venture?


Take a walk along the trail to Sand Pond or Long Pond. Did you pass any enormous boulders in the woods? How do you think they got there?
