The Kancamagus Highway

The Kancamagus Highway is a road in New Hampshire that goes from Conway to Lincoln, through a pass of Mt. Kancamagus. It's one of the most beautiful highways in the world (in my opinion, anyway) and it offers a wide variety of scenery... and weather, as we found out!!

Fog Descending
This is still on the lower part of the road... the fog was VERY thick in some of the higher elevations!

Change Of Season
The fog cleared away as we went along (we went from East to West). But wait... is that SNOW on that peak in the distance?!?

A Winter Wonderland... In October!
Why yes, it IS snow! Lots of snow! There was about 4 inches of snow on the ground at the highest part of the mountain pass.

The Fog Descends
There was still some gorgeous fall scenery, though... I love this picture!

All in all it was a wonderful vacation! We put 3,400 miles on the car (and ourselves... that's a LOT of driving, folks!) and spent about $3,200, including gas, lodging and food on this vacation. I am so glad we went, and we have many memories and pictures to keep it fresh in our minds for a long time to come :)


  1. This is where Karl took me for our first date! On his motorcycle in October and yes it did snow when we were there too! Pretty cold - but his idea of snuggling to get warm was kind of cute!

  2. Absolutely love the photos! Absolutely gorgeous!!! Welcome home!
