Is anybody going to be going for the sunrise on the Auto Road on June 28th? My wife and I are suppose to be going. Hopefully it will have good weather. Just wondering.

Wow nobody :confused:? I tought for sure somebody else would be going up. I figured a nice easy way to get some nice sunrise (hopefully) shots without haveing to haul all the gear up in a back pack:).

Is this some sort of organized event? Hadn't heard anything about it but sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately we're camping in Mass that weekend so couldn't make it anyway...

It is an organized event that the autoroad does at least three times a year. They open the road up early for sunrise. The three dates this year are Sunday, June 28th from 0330 to 1800 EDT, Sunday, July 26th from 0400 to 1800 EDT, and Sunday, August 30th from 0430 to 1800 EDT. The road is open even if there is fog. Actual sunrises are at 0457, 0519, and 0559 for the three dates. If the summit is clear, they are very popular and people have to wait in a line of cars at the base to come up so arriving early is recommended. It takes an hour or more to get up as well pending on who you are stuck behind. As always, hiking is free and can be done at any time to see sunrise.

The July date is the morning after STP, isn't it? Many of us will be "in the area" already!

I have already done one of these two years ago and it was terrific. There definetly is alot of people thats why I got there early last time. I am also going to try to do the one after the STP. I know it doesn't compare to hiking but it is a way I can share the experince with my wife and daughter.
