QUIET ESCAPES: New Hampshire has many peaceful, scenic settings such as the Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, an open-air cathedral on a hilltop setting in the southwest part of the state with a great view of the Mount Monadnock. Stones taken from across the country and from overseas make up an altar recognized by Congress as a National Memorial to American men and women who lost their lives in war. The site holds public events promoting peace, interfaith understanding and respect for the environment. It is free and open through Oct. 31. Information is available at www.cathedralofthepines.org.
