You might want to take the gondola up to the top of Cannon Mountain there, and do the 1/4 mile loop trail hike around the summit to the observation tower. It's spectacular.

I was there just about exactly a year ago, and used it as the kick off to a 4 day hike.

Yessir -- I have done the gondola many times! My family is actually from Franconia.

Probably won't make it this visit, the goal is the Mt Washington auto road with the Tesla - if the summit is clear tomorrow.

Thunder and rain. Right as I went out to finish a job in the yard. It wasn't s'posed to thunder until tomorrow. The hourly forecast was doing well until then..... I waited for the warmest, least windy spot of the day and all was going to plan until... it wasn't

Well, one doesn't want one's beer-drinking time cut into too deeply by yardwork...

Today is the kind of day where you just want to be outside. Glorious bright sunny day with a slight breeze rustling through the trees. Leaves occasionally falling and blowing across the lawn. Absolutely glorious Fall day.

One hour 'til quitting time.

A little cool for top-down cruising...64 & falling.

So it's top-up, creaking, squeaking, rattling, vibrating, shaking cruising. Shouldn't there be bushings? Somewhere in this top?

The other day I was riding around. It was a beautiful day. Cloudless, painfully blue sky, 78 degrees, top down, cruising in the country, the Stones blasting through my one working speaker, pony-tail flapping in the breeze, when it occurred to me that an entire population of this planet would be thinking "It doesn't get better than this."

It's exceptional to look at. I think I could live there, you know, except for the winters

it's actually probably an option since the family still has a wee chunk of land there

Apparently the Atlantic Ocean ran out of hurricanes for the year. Tropical Storm Epsilon may be the last.

Eastern Pacific may have finished with its record number of storms. Last one, that died while heading for California, was Norbert - a 14th storm.

Ironically, Panama has had so little rain that some container ships must now lighten their load. So that canals use less water.
