    This eight-mile road takes you to the Northeast's highest peak, Mt. Washington (6,288 ft), "the top of New England". This road gives you (literally) mile-high views of the Presidential Range and the White Mountain National Forest. $20 for vehicle and driver, includes an audio tour and a bumpter sticker, and $7 for each additional adult passenger and $5 for childrens 5-12 (children under 5 are free). This auto tour is the oldest manmade attraction in the USA, built in 1861.

    On a clear day the mountains just stand out
    sharply. This is Mount Adams and Jefferson
    from Route 2 near Gorham. This is in August.
    Leaves turn earlier up here, in late September.

    The trail goes south from Mount Washington
    to Lake of the Clouds and
    up Mount Monroe.
    This is a view of the lake and hut and
    Mount Monroe behind ( to the south )

    My Father in the Fog

    This was August 1980
    When storm fronts pass through
    temperature can drop fast.
    Its also easy to take a wrong turn on a
    trail branch if not watching the blazes
    carefully in fog. Be prepared for
    changeable, potentially nasty weather
    conditions, especially above treeline
    (4000-4500 feet or so)
