I spent the last few days in New Hampshire’s Great North Woods on a photo shoot.
On the drive up, unusually clear conditions over Mt. Washington prompted me to take a little detour. The often-shrouded summit was perfectly visible with not a cloud anywhere in the beautiful, blue sky. Add to that the unseasonably warm temperatures, and it had the makings of a rare day indeed.
I knew the combination of brightly colorful Cog Railway cars, clear blue sky and striking autumn foliage would create a vibrant spectacle worth enjoying.
In the distance behind this view of Old Peppersass, the original Cog Railway engine, you can see the summit of the mountain.
If you’ve spent any time around the White Mountains, you know this isn’t something you see every day!
If you live in New England, or will be visiting in the next few weeks, consider riding to the top of Mt. Washington via the Cog.
