Autumn in the White Mountains

What a beautiful weekend we had here in New England! It was unseasonably warm with temps in the high 70's. I prefer it much cooler, but it was still very nice. Saturday morning started of nice with breakfast at the West End Diner until a little girl behind me somehow flung eggs all over my back. How does that even happen?! It was kind of awkward as her mother and the waitress tried to clean me off. Anyways, it was soon forgotten as we headed up North into the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. The fall foliage was not quite in full peak, but the scenery was still beautiful. We did some hiking in Franconia Notch along the Pemigewasset River. The leaves and water made for some great photo ops. After playfully disrespecting a statue of Hugh Gallen, we stopped by the Woodstock Brewery for dinner. Great homemade beers and burgers!

The White Mountains are such a great place to enjoy this time of year. It's really too bad that it's so short.

One Foot in Poland, the Other in Slovakia

Saturday we spent the day hiking in the Tatra mountains of Zakopane, southern Poland. The peaks are a little over 6,560 feet. The border of Poland and Slovakia runs along the ridge of the mountains. Along the trail are markers with an obvious "P" for Poland on one side, and "S" for Slovakia on the other. It's kind of cool to stand in 2 countries at the same time! Tatra Mountains Zakopane
