Due to severely hot weather and a good bit of rain, it's been something of a quiet season for me, but I made up for it this week! This was vacation time at last, so for once... instead of staying home and making day trips... I went up to North Conway in New Hampshire and just stayed up in the White Mountains for 4 days... and a great week it was. Stayed at the White Mountain Hotel and Resort which I would definitely recommend if looking to stay in the area and have reasonably fast access to everything worth seeing. In my case, I'm a hiker and photographer, so it was perfect... right next to Echo Lake State Park and situated at the base of White Horse Ledge. Outstanding service all around and the food... phenomenal. Not sure they'll ever see this, but a shot out/thanks to my awesome waitresses... if I remember their names right... Trudy, Bernie & Lexi.
So with that out of the way, my trips! First up was the Welch & Dickey Mountains Loop. First time I've hit two mountains in one day, but was a great hike on a beautiful Fall day. Made even better for the fact there were no bugs out at all. So here'll I'll put out a couple shots from my home away from home and then some views along the trail. The rest of my trips will follow in entries next week.
