the day started with bagels and a nice drive through Goffstown and Dunbarton. when we reached I-93, we were nearly run off the road several times by careless drivers from New Jersey. welcome to leaf-peeping season in New England!

the view from the top is astounding.
these are just a sampling; here’s the link to the full photoset of our trip to Mt. Washington at flickr.
