The White Mountains of New Hampshire

The mountains in New Hampshire are amazing!  We just love New Hampshire!  We took a ride on the Cog Railway.  It was such a neat experience.  This mountain climbing train was invented by Slyvester Marsh and opened in July of 1869.  The engine pushes you up  6288 feet to Mount Washington State Park.  While riding up Marcus and Caroline were intrigued by the environmental changes elevation and temperature make. We have started our third grade curriculum (because they just couldn’t wait once they saw the books) and we are learning about ecosystems.  It took about an hour to reach the summit.  It was a clear at the bottom, but at the top it was as if we were in the clouds.

While visiting the White Mountains of New Hampshire we decided to spend a few hours at Attitash Mountain.  In the winter it is a ski area, but in the summer you can still zoom down the slopes.  We rode on the mountain coaster which was Marcus’ favorite and the alpine slide which Caroline loved.  She is such a speed demon!  We even tried out the bungies. Marcus and Caroline mastered both front and back flips!

On our last day at Jefferson City Campground in Jefferson we decided to go for a bike ride on a rail to trail.  We drove to the trail which was only a few miles away.  Trails in New England are a bit different than the clear bike trails we are used to.  We traveled 9.5 miles to Gorham.  The trail followed along a beautiful stream which we cooled off in.  The 9.5 mile ride back was all up a slight incline.  Marc and I weren’t sure we were going to make it, but we did.  That evening Marcus and Caroline had a great time participating in the Hawaiian themed musical towels and limbo at our campground.  Then we were read to head to Maine!  We will be going to the Capitol of New Hampshire on our way south in a couple weeks.

    The Cog Railway reminds me of when we rode on it a few years ago. Glad you are enjoying the New England states. Look forward to seeing you in Maine! Love, Mom
