White Mountains, New Hampshire

Thought I would share a few photos from our flying visit to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

We were there to pick up pour eldest daughter attending Nordic Ski Camp.  We were picking her up early so we could head onto Boston/ NYC for New Years.   Thankfully, its not too much of a hardship to travel to NH as it really is quite beautiful.

She was ski training around the base of Mount Washington.  A place known for its extreme weather on the peak…massively cold in the winter (-47F) and can be a bit breezy (231mph).  These are extreme records set over the years but impressive none the less.   We so happened to arrive the day after a large storm hit.  A ground level, about 18″ had fallen so it beautifies the area – nice and bright and clean….however, still a little chilly and breezy!

We stayed in Gorham.  Not a lot there really but it offered the best proximity for pick up the next day.  We stayed at Town and Country Inn…Not a lot to say here except its a motel and nothing fancy…i am not sure the website is the most accurate representation of where we stayed!   We only need a place for a night.   Rooms was large but cold….wind howling through the gaps around the door 😦   Dated in decor and no frills.  Younger two enjoyed the pool and steam room and it was ok for just a night.   Most people tend to head to Conway when visiting the area.  Lovely town, tourist scenic railway trips, lots of activities and family orientated.   Most definitely worth a visit if you are there.  North Conway offers outlet shopping should you fancy that.

We rarely head this way in the winter.  Its geared for downhill skiing and we tend not to do much of that.  Many people visit this are in the Fall and take a tour of the Kancamagus Highway – offering views of the mountain foliage.  We have done this in the past and can highly recommend it.

For now, we were afforded spectacular winter views….here are a few!
