If you have never been to New Hampshire, I highly recommend a summer vacation there. It is perhaps my favourite state. New Hampshire is God’s Country, and if you are brave enough to journey to the top of Mount Washington (that’s the mountain in the image above), you will experience Heaven on Earth. Of course, Heaven isn’t for everyone. If you do make it to the Mt. Washington Summit (which is 6288′ above sea level) you will see a wall which lists the names of all of the people who have perished on the mountain, and most of them were inexperienced hikers or mountain-climbers. So, if you do go up there, make sure you respect Mother Nature and prepare yourself for the World’s Worst Weather.
Unfortunately, we cannot go up to the summit today, because the Mount Washington Auto Road does not allow buses. It’s probably a good thing – none of us brought a sweater, and we wouldn’t want Rudy to freeze. So, we will just enjoy the view from a distance:)
And, Dad, watch out for that moose…= :0
