Postcard From White Mountains National Forest, New Hampshire

Beaver Pond on SR 112 near North Woodstock, New Hampshire. In White Mountains National Forest

We’re now in Vermont, but I wanted to post another photo of some of the small amounts of fall color we’ve been seeing.  This is from a spot along SR 112 – before the official start of the Kancamagus Highway.  We actually had (slightly) better conditions on the west side of the “Kanc” while the Highway itself was largely socked in with fog.

Postcard From Mount Washington, New Hampshire

At the summit of Mount Washington, New Hampshire – 6,288 feet. 30 degrees, 40 mph wind and blowing freezing rain!

Blue skies and sunshine just wouldn’t have been the right way to experience Mount Washington, said to have the “worst weather in the country” according to some.  We saw no sunshine today, and in fact were amazed at the strength of the blowing snow, ice and wind at the summit.  We rode the cog railway – no way were they letting cars to the top in those conditions!

Lots of fall color around, although we were faced with a lot of fog, rain and tourists.  Photos to follow, however!
