About this blog

This will be our diary of our two week vacation through the New England states. I'm actually creating the blog on my old site and importing it here from a RSS feed, we'll see how well that goes. I'll go ahead and keep links here in this description just in case.

Day 12 - Mount Washington - Riding the Cog Railway to the Top

Mount Jefferson is the one with the snow. That snow doesn't melt until July. Incredible. A must do. Ride, don't drive.  If you ever get up to the New England states and you travel to New Hampshire, a visit to Mount Washington is something you do not want to miss. On a good day you will get to witness one of the most spectacular views anywhere in the country. Reaching 6288 feet into the New Hampshire sky, Mount Washington is the king of the White Mountains and is one of many peaks in the Preside

Day 3 Saturday - We Arrive

We made it! We arrived in West Yarmouth about 4:30 pm on Saturday.  Along the way we stopped to visit two lighthouses in Rhode Island and eat a lobster roll. :-) I've added a few pictures and a couple of videos below. Most were taken at the two lighthouses or on the way to them. Oh... and my lobster roll. :-) You can't forget the lobster roll.  We're just getting started so I'll have lots more pictures and videos. Now is when it starts getting good! EDIT: Here's the link to the photo album.

Day 2 Friday May 31 - Another Ride

EDIT: The bridge and the bridges I talk about below were actually the next day, June 1. They are in Connecticut... I do know that. :-) We arrived at Shelton CT and stayed at a Hampton Inn (the best one of the whole trip) and then continued driving the next day on the road you see above. I think. The days all ran together. :-) After the fiasco from yesterday, we have decided to skip the stop in Philly to see Independence Hall, and I think that decision proved to be a wise one. Also... if you tr

Day 2 Friday - Another Ride

After the fiasco from yesterday, we have decided to skip the stop in Philly to see Independence Hall, and I think that decision proved to be a wise one. Also... if you travel and use Google Maps... just know that the drive times you see is probably not going to be the time you actually spend on the road. Obviously Google doesn't know how many times you're gonna stop, and it doesn't know how fast you'll travel among other things.  The bridge you see in the picture above is one of many on th

Day 1 Thursday - The Long Haul Part 1

Home to Baltimore Here we go! Up early this morning for one of our two longest continuous stretches of driving. Our destination today is the Hyatt Regency at the inner harbor area of Baltimore Maryland. Thanks to @mudrun for all of the great information about the Baltimore area! This leg of the trip is about 650 miles and Google is estimating about 11 hours on the road, so it's going to be a long day. The plan is to leave at 4 am in order to miss rush hour traffic in Charlotte and DC.  The orig
