Our last day in New Hampshire's White Mountains before the drive into Maine and on to Acadia National Park.

Mount Washington Auto Road
Mount Washington

6288 feet high on the Appalachian Trail and with a reputation for extreme winds.

The view from halfway up...

Mt Washington 1

On what was a calm day for this part of the White Mountains, the wind was still strong enough to blow you off balance - Miche battling through the stunted trees...

Mt Washington 2

It had snowed the night before, so we weren't allowed to drive to the very top - which means I feel a bit of a fraud owning the traditional bumper sticker below...

At first I was a little skeptical of this chap's chances of catching anything in the small clear pools...
River 2

However, he soon proved me wrong with a little trout...


Paul river

River 3

This was probably the most vividly red tree that we saw...

Pinkham Notch

Pinkham Notch

After we'd failed to find a moose the evening before, we decided to stake out this likely looking pond, but alas we left the White Mountains & New Hampshire Moose-less - still a beautiful beaver pond though...

Another rock-hugging set of roots...
