We've been to the White Mountains of New Hampshire many times, each time I find yet another Awe moment that I some how missed the last time we were there. We decided to go up mid foliage season, (second, third week in October, foliage was a little later this year). It's a great time to enjoy the peaceful surroundings before the skiing crowd arrives. You have to take in the beauty of Bear Notch Road, it's about 30 miles of breath taking beauty with various scenic stops to get every angle. Add the colors with the sounds of the rivers going down stream and you're at peace.

This is a gorgeous area of the US ! The mountains are simply beautiful. We drove up Mt Washington and it was spectacular. We saw a large moose in the wild and he let us observe him for about a half an hour. Don't miss the many stunning waterfalls and gorges in the area . We did a lot of hiking and swimming - perfect area for nature lovers and we will be sure to go back

The mountains were really beautiful in their Autumn red colours. And the aerial cable car by the Old Man of the Mountains was well worth a visit, taking you a further few thousand feet to a summit. The cable operators were also quite amusing during the journey upwards, and the views from the top were spectacular. Well worth a visit.

And there is even Mussolinl's sword in the ski museum at the bottom.
