Well, the first full day of the New Hampshire Road Trip ’12 is officially a wrap – and boy what a day it was!
Since the itinerary is pretty packed during my stay and as I want to make use of every waking moment to explore this place I’m going to stick to some quick, round-ups of each day with the help of photos.
I’ll save the full posts about what I got up to for when I get home and am resting up for the next adventure.
Ready? Set? GO!
The morning kicked off EARLY as we drove through upstate New York and then Vermont where, at one point, we were surrounded by windmills. Everywhere you looked they were spinning in the wind.
A first major stop of the trip was Franconia Notch State Park where we checked out the Flume among other things. Basically, there were three massive pieces of rock – like a hamburger - but sideways. Anyways…the middle rock eroded much easier than the outside rocks and thus created this Flume.
This picture does not do it justice!
Before leaving the park, we zipped down to Echo Lake Beach which had this gorgeous vista. If you are into
outdoor activities – this is the place for you!
Our day has wrapped up here, at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center in Crawford Notch. It’s quiet (now that the children are sleeping – I’ll fill you in later), I can see the stars, the food is delicious and my Mom is sound asleep as I write this post.
No doubt the day was fun and action packed.
Tomorrow we’ll be heading to the base of the oldest mountain train in the world, meeting some sled dogs and Plymouth.
I’m ready for it.
Thank you again to New Hampshire Tourism for hosting me during this road trip. So far – SO good!
