    White Mountain National Forest

    October 2, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    The village of North Conway is tourist-oriented with shops, bars and restaurants. They even offer moose bus tours in the evening as there is an abundance of moose in this area and tourists are willing to pay $30 to hopefully see a real live moose ("96% success rate"). There are lots of roadside signs warning of "moose crossing" and "hundreds of collisions" but we didn't see nor hit any thankfully.

    Apart from touristy North Conway is the beautiful and rugged White Mountain National Forest. There are serious hikers here and the 6288 foot Mount Washington, the highest peak in the NE USA, is considered one of the 10 most dangerous small mountains in the world. The weather at the summit is comparable to the Antarctic and has logged the highest wind velocity in the world at 231 mph! The Visitor Centre has a memorial to the 152 people who have died attempting to climb the mountain, often from hypothermia.

    We continued to enjoy our short, scenic hikes! One of my favourites was Diana's Bath, a 1 km hike to a series of cascading waterfalls. We were well rewarded for enduring the heavy rainfall this week!

    Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

    July 28, 2016 in the United States ⋅

    Shoutout to Mr. and Mrs. Carlson for posting about their trip to Mt. Washington, because that's what put the place on our radar. It's a privately owned road that to goes to the top, so it cost us $38. We originally thought that was kind of a racket, but man, it was actually really worth it. It's a narrow, only partly paved road that winds a 4725 foot ascent to get to the top of a 6288 foot mountain. They claim that this road accommodates two cars at all places, and I think I believe them... but passing a car while driving a foot away from a two thousand foot cliff makes one question some things!

    The top of Mt. Washington started completely foggy, but cleared up a bit as we were there, probably due to the insane amount of wind. There was an outpost at the top that scientists live in to monitor the weather at the summit, which incidentally is notoriously insane. There are signs with giant letters that say things like "at any sign of bad weather, TURN BACK IMMEDIATELY!" So that was pretty fun. All in all, the views from the top were stunning, and it was such a cool experience!

    The Mount Washington Hotel

    October 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    We stopped on the way to see one of America's most luxurious hotels.

    In 1944, The Mount Washington hosted the Bretton Woods International Monetary Conference. Delegates from 44 nations convened (including Winston Churchill), establishing the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, setting the gold standard at $35 an ounce and designating the United States dollar as the backbone of international exchange. The signing of the formal documents took place in the Gold Room, located off the Hotel Lobby and now preserved as an historic siteRead more

    Top of Mt Washington

    September 23, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    It took four hours to get up and three to get down, but I made it all the way to the top. The best part was I met Adam, another road tripper, towards the top and we talked and complained how much our bodies ached on the way down.

    Climbing Mt Washington

    September 23, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    I started at Pinkham Notch. I hiked Tuckerman Ravine trail, then Lion's Head all the way to the very top. I felt like I was doing lunges the whole way up on the very rocky trail. I even talked to someone that said that he's hiked 18 miles in one day off the AT, which felt the same as doing 4 on the mountain.Read more
