My son, a friend and I headed over to Pinkham Notch Visitor Center early on Saturday. Got there at 5AM and headed across the street and up to Square Ledge. We had not been there before and had no idea what the trail was like or how long it was. It was not on any of the maps or software we had. Turns out it is not long and we should have carried tripods up.
It was still fully dark when we got there and took pictures as the sun came up down the valley and of Mt Washington. We saw soe headlamps heading up towards Tuckermans in the dark. Brian Clark had told me the day before that Saturday was the morning to have a chance of a clear summit view. We were doubting him for a long time, but eventually the summit cleared and we had a great view.
Then 2 of us went up to route 2 and down route 113 in Evans Notch checking out the fall colors. Stopped at the old Eastman farm on route 113 to see the 5 day old calves - off to Harrison, Maine - and took pictures in that area. We saw a good variety of color and had a good time.
