“Nice Mountain Scenery”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

These are not the Alps, so don't expect significant height, but beauty, serenity, clear skies, lots of mountain overlooks and somewhat dense forest are abundant. Go up at night and check out the stars. Take in some of the special off-shoots along the drive. Take snacks and drinks with you. Although you are not many miles from town, the speed limits are very low and you don't move fast through the mountains. Ranger station is a must. Get some maps so you can plan what sections you want to see. Very helpful staff. Some of the things along the way have fees, but if we want things to be nicely maintained, we have to be willing to help with the cost, and the fees are minimal.

“Beautiful Panoramic Views”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Visit the White Mountains for beautiful panoramic views, especially during the fall foliage season. (Note that Fall Foliage comes at a slightly different time each year, so check the internet, call the tourism department or check with someone in the area before traveling.)

“Mount Washington”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The drive in cool chilly weather was excellent.The audio CD guide provided for the tour is quite informative and exhaustive. It was a thrilling experience to climb to the summit in chilling and gushing winds in hazy visibility

“Not what I was expecting”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Went to the White Mountains and expected they would be White. They were green. Not what I was expecting.
Hiked the Appalacian Trail. Thought I'd see some bald eagles and at least one American flag blowin' in the breeze. Did not. Yet again, not what I was expecting.
