After spending a few great days in Essex Junction and Burlington, Vermont, we traveled towards the Maine coast through New Hampshire. I happened on a great place to stay for an evening through Harvest Hosts. Mount Washington Cog Railway.
The Cog Railway allows you to park in their RV lot overnight at no cost. It's a very quiet parking lot with a spectacular view of the White Mountains and Mount Washington. As a bonus, since neither of us had done it before, we took the cog train to the top and spent an hour on Mount Washington.
The last time I was up on Mount Washington, I hiked down to Lake of the Clouds hut and back on a beautiful fall afternoon. Weather can change fast and is constantly changing on Mount Washington. The weather was very cool and windy this time around but, as always, the views are great even if we were a little socked in with cloud cover.
