Well, here we are at Twin Mountain, New Hampshire. This is our 4th stay at this KOA campground, nestled at the foot of Cherry Mountain, which is part of the White Mountain chain. This region is fairly remote from activity except for skiing and dog sledding in the winter and taking the cog railroad tour to the top of Mt. Washington in the summer.
Siblings, Patti, Barb and Jim chose to take the railroad tour to the top for a 3 state view, when you go, you take your chances that it will be clear when you reach the summit. The highest recorded winds in the world have been recorded there. Since we have taken the cog railroad up before, I chose to stay back for a mountain road walk and an exciting morning with the washer and dryer. Even though it seems like we are on vacation, when you take your house with you, there is always work to be done. I’ve yet to convince George to take along a maid and cook! HA!
After the group returned from the top of the mountain, we all met at the beautiful Mount Washington resort to celebrate Barb’s birthday. This magnificent hotel (now owned by the Omni Corp.) was built in 1828 and recently went through a 50 million dollar renovation. In the early 1940’s, it was the site of the signing of the International Monetary Fund Agreement that was later put in to effect at the United Nations. The creaky wooden floors and beautiful antiques are a unique setting to view the White Mountains, especially from the wicker seated veranda.
After a delicious lunch, (Carol and Jim got a head start on Maine, by having the Lobster with macaroni and cheese.) we took a drive to see a few covered bridges. The day had warmed up too much for a campfire tonight as we had the previous night. Its going to be a little warmer then usual until Sat., when it’s supposed to be in the 70’s.
Tomorrow, we are off to our favorite state, Maine. We will be staying in Boothbay Harbor for 4 days until we go north to Camden.
Stay tuned boys and girls!
