Climb up Cathedral Ledge located close to West Side Road. It´s a high mountain wall. From the top you have a breathtaking view across the valley. Might be closed during wintertime. A drive north on Route 16 to Wildcat Ski Area and Mount Washington. The scenary is beautiful. I didn´t ski at Wildcat because it was too expensive, neither did I get on top of Mount Washington (the scenic road to the top of New Hampshire´s highest mountain was closed due to winter conditions), but only the drive through the White Mountains National Forest on Route 16 was awesome and worth spending some gas.
The Long Awaited Ski Vacation to Die For
"Taking A Break"
So This is the Long Awaited Ski Trip!! It was me and a bunch of great friends. Most of us were from New Hampshire, but we were lucky enough to have a visitor come to ski with us all the way from England! It was 7 Days away from home, no kids, no husbands, no worries, no cooking, no stress!
Lots of skiing, good dinners out, shopping, laughing, and hot-tubbing!
We skiied all day at Mount Cranmore, one of the ski areas local to North Conway, New Hampshire. It was 55 degrees the days we skiied and it truly doesnt get any better that that in New Hampshire.
My friend Sue and I are taking a little break here!
"Waiting on the Lift Line"
It was such a warm day that the slopes were a bit packed.. Here is Graham and my bestest Friend Shelley waiting in the lift lines... but the lift lines are run so well at Cranmore that we didnt wait long even so!
"Downtown North Conway"
The downtown are of North Conway is filled with adorable little shops for everyone's tastes. A favorite shop of mine is Zeb's where you can get - well you can get all sorts of things there, it is impossible to describe the merchandise, old fashioned candy, soaps, soup spice, mugs, pottery, iron works! Everything!
There is also a very picturesque train station in town, and an ice skating rink as well.
There are also many restaurants from gourmet, casual, family, bars, everything you can imagine. It is really an adorable perfect quintessential New England Town
Along the Kancamagus
"Entering the Kanc from Conway"
heading for Lincoln, NH.
Enjoy what many consider one of the top fall-foliage trips in the world when you drive the Kancamagus Scenic Byway.
On the eastern section of the Highway, you can visit the Rocky Gorge Scenic Area, and see where the Swift River has, over time, worn a narrow cleft through solid stone.
"Cliffs at Rocky Gorge"
The Kancamagus Highway was named for an early Indian Chief of the Penacook Confederacy. Called "The Fearless One," Chief Kancamagus tried to keep the peace between his people and the white settlers. However, repeated harassment by the English ended his efforts.
