Saw a ton of Indian Head businesses so I had to see what the buzz was about. Found it and didn't see what it was all about. But then again, I don't see all those things my wife sees in clouds.

Indian head is a resort my grandmother stayed at frequently in her travels . This visit we decided to check it out. Awesome views , the tower was so tall but worth the climb. Free paddle boating was awesome 😊

Unfortunately, it was a rainy day so we didn't do the hike but it was easy to see from the road. We pulled over at the Indian Head hotel parking lot to get a great picture.

Even if you're not staying at the Indian Head resort, stop by and climb the tower. Open daily except bad weather and snow.

Mount Pemigewasset in Lincoln is a great hike with super views. I am sure it would be spectacular during the colors of the fall. Hot day in July is still very nice.
