Beauty in the mountains
Single lone tree
Footbridge over the rocks
Picture-perfect - waterfall, foliage, rocks
Highway 302 and interstate 93 were also great spots to see the color. We stopped in Lincoln at end of our trip at the "Half-baked and fresh brewed" coffee cafe - had our coffee/latte and shared a yummy warm cinnamon roll. Checked out the gorgeous Omni Mount Washington Resort. Yesterday at the Cog railway, we met a family from Cincinnati, Chattanooga, and Lake Placid who were all visiting the area and in town for wedding last night at the resort - wow!!! I'm sure that was quite something.
Stopped at the Bretton Woods Ski Resort (largest in NH). Other than zip lining, repelling and gondola rides, nothing was open, so no hot toddy or glass of wine before a roaring fire. Views were awesome though!
Back to Flo for some hot cider and hooked Big Red and Flo up as the rain is coming and not wanting to do that in the morning.
Meant to talk about the COG railway system yesterday - this is the oldest in the world (since 1869) and currently the only one operating in the US as Pikes Peak did not operate in 2018 and not sure if/when it will be back? The picture shows the cog down middle of track that holds the train in place and keeps it from coming backwards down the mountain. The engine pushes the car up the mountain and coming down, it leads the way with car behind.
The past few days, the internet has been awful with little or no service.....sooooo thankful that my techie hubby knows which cables and other stuff to set up to bring in a signal. Most of the time it works, but really s l o w here. He does a phenomenal job of keeping me "connected".
Back in 2012, we had visited the neat Maine towns of Portland (Old Port), Kennebunkport, and Ogunquit so passed on those this time; ahhhh, there's just sooo much to see and do out here in the beautiful NE.
October 15th seems to be the magic date that most RV parks will close for the season although we've seen others closed already. Summer is definitely high tourist season but we can't say we experienced the heavy traffic/# of people for fall colors (probably cause it's not prime time) just yet? At any rate, we have had a very leisurely and enjoyable time seeing the sites and getting around.
So tomorrow we will be leaving New England.....just as we did for checking the best viewing for the cherry blossoms, so it has been with fall colors (website when it is at peak in different parts of the state(s). Although it is not peak here, we are overwhelmed by all the beauty and our friends, Allie and Owen who are headed this way, should see the full effect!
Bye bye September and thanks for so many wonderful memories....
