Jun 28, 2019 - White Mtn natl park

We left Maine in the rain and headed toward NH and the Kangamagus hwy which winds through the mtns. Pretty views as the sun came out for us. We stopped at Big Rock park which has a huge erratic boulder near the entrance. Built a campfire and cooked steak as we're seafooded out!

Oct 14, 2018 - Mt. Washington Loop

We woke up to a beautiful sunny day today. On the way to our first stop for the day we visited the World War I and II memorial honoring the residents of Lincoln who served their country. My dad was born in Lincoln and my grandfather did serve in WWI. It was something to see his name on this plaque about 100 years after he served. We then made our way to the Flume, one of the must-dos on a visit to New Hampshire they say. The Flume is a natural gorge extending 800 feet at the base of Mt. Liberty.

Oct 13, 2018 - “Moving Day” -- Saturday at the Fall Colors Open

We were expecting imperfect weather today, so we decided to hit the road and seek drier climes in Vermont. Our most distant target was Burlington on the New York border, but, while we had a splendid day, that never happened. We started, heading north to St. Johnsbury, Vt., but before we made it out of state, we diverted to Littleton, NH. After several failed attempts to get tunes from our smart phones to the minivan’s audio, we decided to find an expert at a local Chrysler dealer to get ‘er done. He had the good grace to be, or pretend to...

Oct 12, 2018 - The Adventure Continues...

We started the day with a stop in the Visitors’ Center in town to get suggestions. We decided to go to the Mt. Washington Auto Road and have someone else drive us up the mountain. However, before we got there we stopped at a viewpoint for photos. It is impossible to go even a few miles without seeing vistas that took our breath away. When we got to the box office, we learned that the top of the mountain was closed due to inclement weather and we were only going to be able to go to the 6 mile (out of 7.6) point. We had a very informative...

Oct 11, 2018 - Off We Go & Day One

October 10, 2018 Den and the two Kathy's had a pleasant flight from LAX to Logan in Boston . . . . actually arrived 20 minutes early. We then connected with Judi at baggage claim (her flight from Detroit arrived just before ours so she did not wait long for us). Then it was off to secure a car from Budget Rental. We were assigned a vehicle, packed up all the luggage, started heading away from the airport when we realized that the A/C and defrost functions were not working. So back we went to exchange for another vehicle. THEN we were on our...

Sep 4, 2016 - Sept 3 East Thetford, VT to Lincoln, New Hampshire

Woke up to heavy dew and soaking wet tent and only 47 degrees!! Cold and damp! And heavy fog on top of it all! Not my favorite kind of day to start out with!! Packing a wet tent is the worst, but we knew the day was going to be warm and we could dry it out. We also know we have a hotel room tonight, with a two night minimum in Lincoln. Labor Day Weekend, everything we could find campgrounds and hotels alike were booked. After a bit of thought, it probably is a good idea that we not ride on such a busy traffic day anyway. Lincoln we have...
