    The Kancamagus Highway

    August 20, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    When we got up Joni prepared breakfast for us three: Delicious scrambled eggs with bacon and for dessert we had avocados and a chocolate cake. Then we headed back to the hiker hostel where the car waited for us. We packed the stuff and I brought them to the start for their next stage on the way to Mount Kathadin (the endpoint of the AT). Unfortunately Joni forgot the water filter at the hostel so we had to return to get it and come back again. That costed us roughly an hour. After the farewell I had the plan to drive a detour back to my accomodation. I was driving on the Kancamagus highway which is a very famous recreational area within the White Mountain National Forest. As the weather was perfect lots of people had the same idea. I stopped at several viewing points and also did a small hike. At the end I came to the Swift river on which I wanted to relax a bit in the sun but there were so many people that I decided to hit the road. I still had many miles to drive anyway. On the way I got hungry and I stopped at a Five Guys restaurant - they have the best burgers - to enjoy my first burger here. Hopefully there are many more to follow :-) Then I finally arrived in Newburyport and strolled around this nice little town and had an ice cream. The sun went down and I prepared myself for the day after.Read more
