The following photo collage shows typical scenes experienced on a recent romp up the Mt. Prospect Auto Road at Weeks State Park near Lancaster, NH. As the snapshots show, it was an overcast day. However, on a clear day, Mt. Prospect provides stunning 360-degree views which include the White Mountains to the south and east, the Green Mountains in Vermont to the west, and peaks in the Connecticut River valley to the north.

My Blog (click HERE (http://1happyhiker.blogspot.com/2012/12/this-road-is-made-for-walking-mt.html)) has some further details about this location. Perhaps it might be a venue to consider for those times when you only want (or have time for) about 2 hours worth of outdoor activity. It's something that can be incorporated into a day's itinerary when visiting other locations in the North Country of NH.

It does look like a nice place for a walk or hike. I seem to recall visiting it some time ago in the summer, but it looks even better with snow. Thanks posting John!
