Who needs to drive up Mt. Washington to get thrills? We had our own walking version by taking what was touted as an "easy access" trail to the top of Bald Mountain. A 1 1/2 hour simple trail that would satisfy the hikers and yet be light-hearted enough for those who were older (that would be me).
Somewhere there's a bunch of park rangers sitting around with their coffee cups chuckling to themselves over the grand joke they're playing on a bunch of tourists.
So we had steep climbs
My husband, waiting out the rain
weak tires, faulty brakes, and astounding views.
It took us a lot longer than the time allotted, but the boys say it was the best memory of the day.
