Oct 3, 2018 - Mt. Washington Cog Railway

Understanding that the fall would be the peak season, I made our reservations for the Cog Railway back in March because I wanted to secure a certain date. That was not necessary. I was able to change the time of our trip yesterday. We tried to hold out hope that the weather would lift. It didn't! On a positive note, it wasn't raining. Mt. Washington was heavily shrouded in the clouds and fog. The views were minimal and temporary. We moved along at the maximum speed of 5 mph as we climbed grades of 25 - 37%! At times the rear of the coach...

Oct 2, 2018 - Franconia Notch State Park

We were determined to not be deterred today due to the weather. The forecast was not promising anything other than rain!! During the drive south to Franconia Notch, the rain was intermittent. There is a premium fee for going through the flume. It is a 2 mile loop trail that goes along the flume, passes a number of waterfalls, and two covered bridges. We were on the trail about two hours. It rained most of the time, but the foliage of the trees provided some shelter. It must rain frequently, because there were four rain shelters along the...

Oct 1, 2018 - Travel to Littleton, New Hampshire

We worshipped with Christians in Tilton, NH yesterday. The remainder of the day was spent on departure preparations. Today, we traveled further north to Littleton. The weather was awful! Rain, rain, rain!!! It would have been a beautiful drive. The mountains were shrouded in clouds. We had time to go to Franconia Notch, but it was raining too hard. 72 miles Crazy Horse Campground f/h; 50 amp; pull thru; cable; Wifi Direct Satellite Reception

Jul 31, 2018 - Littleton, NH

Surprise, surprise! When we packed up, the hydraulics worked perfectly! Wow! But when we arrived at the Littleton KOA, no go. We put out the landing gear, unhitched from the truck, and leveled the camper. Then Janet tried to put out the slides, and the hydraulics worked again! Go figure! We had dinner with my Uncle Perry and Aunt Eschol, who are good and the same as always. They have a nice home and we admired their garden and flowers. And we caught up on family news. Tomorrow we will be home! Only a retired person would look forward to...

Sep 18, 2016 - Littleton, NH

Our first trip in New Hampshire was to Littleton (settled 1769, population 980) The wide Ammonoosuc River flows through town, along with a restored grist mill. The residents are so friendly! We stood at a corner not knowing which way to turn and a woman came up and provided directions. Fabulous! Miller's Cafe and the Riverwalk covered bridge were as picturesque as the photos in the travel guides! The farmer's market featured a wide variety of produce, food and craft items and a local author, Marrilinne Cooper. The author of the Tyler...

Oct 2, 2013 - Littleton, NH

Littleton, NH is the home of my Uncle and Aunt, whom we haven't seen for a year. This makes for a nice stop on our way home and the Littleton KOA will be our last night on the road! We left Rockport early so that we could be in Littleton for lunch and it was overcast the whole way which was unfortunate because it appeared that we passed through some areas that were in peak foliage. It was especially nice because I forgot how pretty the foliage could be. Driving from Rockport, Maine to Northern NH/VT makes for an awkward route. You know...

Sep 21, 2012 - White Mountains

Today was a nice day of driving around and seeing the local scenery. There is some color popping up here and there, but they say the peak here is around October 4th (my birthday). Barb at the office directed us to a place to get some 'pure Vermont maple syrup' and called ahead to make sure they had some available. So we took her advice and drove to see Willard Powers and get some "Real Vermont Maple Syrup." We were expecting to see how the syrup was made, etc., and this wasn't quite what we expected. Don't know if we bought some Walmart...

Sep 19, 2012 - South Hero, VT to Littleton, NH

It was a beautiful day and a short, scenic 200-mile drive from the Apple Island Resort to the Crazy Horse Campground in Littleton, NH. We're starting to see some color in the trees, and the freeze tonight should help move things along, we're told. Had our first campfire of the trip :)

Sep 5, 2012 - The soybeans aren't ready!

We had two inches of rain yesterday in Richmond Hill. The soybeans are a few weeks from harvest, so Glenna and I decided to hook up the trailer and move out. We left the farm shortly after 9 this morning and traveled east on the 401 to Montreal. It was a beautiful day for a drive. From Montreal we continued south east to Derby Line and into Vermont via Interstate 91. The last time we visited the White Mountains it was too foggy to take the tram ride on the Cannon Aerial Tram as we drove through the Franonia Notch. We are looking forward to...

Aug 26, 2012 - New Hampshire & Vermont

Hello All! We've turned the coach around and we are heading WEST! California here we come!! Of course there will be stops along the way,,,, but the ultimate goal is to be home by the first part of October! So we will be moving at a faster pace than we've been moving! New Hampshire and Vermont are small states, but there was a lot to see and do! We will want to come back here! ESPECIALLY in the fall! We can already see the leaves are starting to turn up here in the New England states. I'm a little sad that we won't be here to see it in it's...

Oct 10, 2010 - Fall Foliage at its Peak

Well, I would say today was a beautiful day, both in weather and scenery. We started out the day around 55deg, and clear sky, ended in the 60’s with clear skies – perfect. We enjoyed a Pancake breakfast hosted by the campgrounds. Then we headed out and drove through the White Mountains. We started here in Littleton and headed east picking up the Presidential Range Tour on the Kinsman Notch. It was very busy with other “Leaf watchers” so we were not always able to pull over to get that most awesome photo, but we still took plenty to be able...

Oct 9, 2010 - Antique shopping in Littleton

We stayed close to town today, not knowing what way the weather wanted to turn. We visited a Antique shop that was set up in an old Masonic Temple. They had lots of good stuff, but nothing that we couldn’t live without. We had coffee in a quaint little coffee shop on the river, toured an old grist mill and then went candy shopping at the world’s longest candy counter – 112 feet long – Debi’s sweet tooth was happy just to be in the room. We were good, as was the candy, and only purchases a few pieces of black liquorish, a few peach rings,...
