Where I stayed
Ball Mountain Lake Campground
When it arrived there was no problem with our size thankfully, and at $25 for our 41ft in length it was much cheaper than driving around. We squeezed down the ramp and rode across arriving in Vermont after 15 minutes.
We found a lovely campsite and decided to stay for 3 nights so that we could cover both Vermont and New Hampshire in 2 full days.
Mt Washington in New Hampshire has both a cog railway and an auto route to its 6000ft summit. It was nearly freezing at the top but we were lucky to have one of the few clear days so the views were awesome. The highest ever wind speed recorded was done here at 231mph!! Yes it was windy!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Washington_(New_Hampshire) The drive up and down was a trip, very narrow in places and always steep, it is only 6000ft but the drive starts near sea level, unlike the 12000ft pass we drove in Colorado where the drive starts at 7-8000ft.
We visited a few water falls on the return journey across New Hampshire and it reminded us alot of Oregon.
We are headed for P-Town MA for the weekend!!
