John went fishing on Chocorua Lake this AM and then after lunch we head to Gorham. I had never been up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, so we decided today was the day…oh boy…Halfway up I decided the White Pass and Yukon Railroad in Alaska was a piece of cake compared to this. I am not afraid of heights, but let’s just say I was “anxious” in a few spots. What was I thinking? Mt. Washington is 6,288 feet high and we drove our car to the top. Neither of us thought to bring a jacket, (what were we thinking?), so when we reached the summit John stayed in the car.it was cold and VERY windy – 40+mph gusts. I did get out and took a few pictures (what was I thinking?), but was glad to get back in and head down. There were times I had the window open, camera around my neck, leaning into John (away from the edge – like that was going to protect me) holding the camera up in the air and shooting pictures – I did not want to look down. Below are some of the pictures.
We drove up to the top of the mountain on the left.

Mt. Washington Observatory
View from the top looking towards Conway.
The Cog Railway at the top of the mountain.
And if all of that wasn’t enough excitement, I made a LARGE ebay purchase. A hacker messed John’s ebay up a few years ago, so he shut it down. Whenever he needs/wants something we use my ebay. Below is my purchase…hmmm…wonder who will be using this? What was I thinking???
1986 Suzuki Cavalcade 1400 Touring Bike. It replaces the one he sold a few years ago and the price was right. (What was I thinking?!?)
I hope you had a great Labor Day…first day of school tomorrow!
