A Roadtrip

A spur of the moment trip to Montreal found us driving through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

I grew up visiting these beautiful mountains, but each time I visit, I am always in awe of their beauty. 

I found one mountain with some “white” on it!

Of course, we couldn’t pass through Franconia Notch without seeing the “Old Man of the Mountain”.

The beautiful granite ledge that has been the symbol of New Hampshire for years collapsed down the side of the mountain in May of 2003.

A memorial has been erected in its memory. If you line up all the lines on the medal bars that stands at the old viewing site, you can see where his face use to sit.

Echo Lake is still as beautiful as it’s always been. A small little lake that just glistens with all of the peace of the land around it.

Griffin was very curious as to why he couldn’t see an old man sitting on the mountain. It made me wonder what he had envisioned in his imagination.

Franconia Notch is such a beautiful spot in New Hampshire and one of my favorite places to visit.

Happy Adventures!

    Ahhh the Kanc and Franconia Notch <3 (I think that first photo is from the Kancamagus Highway, no?)

    Looks like you picked a great time to go! Not a whole lot of traffic, I hope. We were up there at the Hancock campground on the Lincoln side of the Kanc just a couple of weekends ago and we didn't leave the campground for fear of the peepers!

    Looks like a lovely trip. I apologize for the long comment. I just REALLY love that area!

    I’m almost ashamed to admit that I’ve never been to see the Old Man and now I’ll never get to…
    Thanks for the photos. They bring back happy memories!
