Driving Snowcoach Up Mt. Washington, New Hampshire
Mt. Washington SnowCoaches leave the base area of the Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and climb up about 4.5 miles, or two thirds of the way to the summit. Upon arrival at the “Top of the Tour”, passengers are invited to exit the SnowCoach for a few minutes for photos and video opportunities before climbing back aboard for the downward journey back to the base.
At times views can be breathtaking overlooking the protected Great Gulf Wilderness and the Presidential mountain range. At other times high winds and snow can be experienced allowing passengers to witness the extreme conditions which Mount Washington is so well known for.
The Mt. Washington SnowCoach is a custom-designed tour vehicle which climbs up to tree-line on Mt. Washington (approximately 4,200 feet) for a one-of-a-kind adventure.
Powered by a 4-track, all-wheel-powered drive-train, the 9 passenger Mt. Washington SnowCoach transports guests (weather permitting) into a treeless, sub-arctic world for a truly unforgettable adventure which anyone of any age will enjoy!
Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) and the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. It is famous for dangerously erratic weather. For 76 years, until 2010, a weather observatory on the summit held the record for the highest wind gust directly measured at the Earth's surface, 231 mph (372 km/h or 103 m/s), on the afternoon of April 12, 1934. Before European settlers arrived, the mountain was known as Agiocochook, or Home of the Great Spirit.
The mountain is located in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, in the township of Sargent's Purchase, Coös County, New Hampshire. While nearly the whole mountain is in the White Mountain National Forest, an area of 59 acres (24 ha) surrounding and including the summit is occupied by Mount Washington State Park.

A trip down the famous Mount Washington Auto Road in Pinkham Notch, Gorham, New Hampshire. It was my 22nd. time up and down the mountain.
Driving Up Mt Washington In New Hampshire
I drove up Mt Washington in my car this past weekend. The mountain is 6,228ft tall and is the highest mountain in the North East. The road to the top is 8 miles long and it took a half hour each way to drive it. The video is sped up but the fastest I ever went was 20mph. With no guard railings its definitely a drive that will get your heart pumping!

NH Fall Foliage Drive Part Three
On the last leg of this foliage ride we will be leaving Grafton Notch and passing by Srew Auger Falls and arriving in Newry, Maine. Next we see the turn off for Sunday River which is a large ski area in this part of Maine. We are now heading West on Route 2 to Bethel, Maine. The roads are better and the mountains are full of fall colors. We will be entering New Hampshire again in Shelburne, NH where we see a beautiful stone house and a lake that has train tracks that are still in operation in the center of the lake. The train passes there at night. We will see the Presidential Mountain Range which includes Mount Washington the highest peak in New England. Our ride ends in Gorham, NH which gets lots of tourist leaf peepers just like what we did. The whole ride is around 100 miles and take a little over two hours. Hope you enjoyed the videos. Thanks
