The OTHER Mt Washington
(taken this morning)
I've taken the Mt Washington ship around the lake, but it still doesn't stop at the summit, which is frustrating.
Wow, I didn't realize that we had lifts now!
Keep close to Nature's heart...
and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir

in September from Laconia with my mom. They open the ship for this trip once a year. Hundreds of COPD, emphysema and lung cancer patients. Very sobering experience. One I would love to bring all my smoker friends and relatives on.
The crew is great. They have an entertainer and serve a great meal. Most have a great time.
Very nice of them to host this.
Great pano! The ship actually came from Lake Champlain and was cut in half and expanded. Must have been a huge job just getting it here.
It fits through the Weirs? Oh wait, Weirs Beach IS technically Laconia.
Leaves right from the Weirs Peirs.
check my other post, I took a few panos at the other lakes near me, 2 are iced already
