From Vermont To New Hampshire
After the nice days in Stowe it was time to get on the road again. The destination in mind: Mount Washington - The highest peak in New Hampshire.
We have followed a scenery route with special historical landmarks aside - covered bridges. Vermont is well known for many preserved covered bridges. We have made some pictures of some great bridges in many different places. Hours later at the late afternoon we have arrived at the Mt. Washington national park. The entrance fee covered also a welcome package with an instruction CD how to drive a car in the mountains. It was full of advise and other stuff that sound odd if you live in a mountainous country and are used to drive a car in the mountains.
Reaching the peak was great. It's high over the surrounding valleys and other mountains and we had a great, scenic view. The road to the summit was built well over 100 years ago for tourism purposes!
After all the nature we've got hungry and we decided to go for something new: KFC, Kentucky Fried Chicken. It was a greasy and fun experience because he staff was very funny shouting with each other.
Next stop will be probably at the coast and from there down back to Boston to have a full circle through New Hampshire.
