Mountains, foliage and a little food.

When you exit the Kancamagus Highway…

.

.

You find yourself in the town of Woodstock, and when you’re in Woodstock?

.

.

You have to visit the Woodstock Inn and Brewery.

.

.

Of course if you visit this time of year.. you can expect to search endlessly for a parking spot, be unable to sit outside due to the high crowd volume, and find that the only indoor space available are two stools at the end of the bar.

.

.

The brewery is a funky place, filled with all kinds interesting eye candy.

.

.

But it was extremely crowded as well as extremely loud, so we decided to have a drink and an appetizer and be on our way.

.

.

Pomegranate margarita and some fabulous duck wontons with sweet Thai chili sauce for me.

.

.

And a French onion soup so loaded with cheese for the husband I thought he’d never get through it.

.

.

After our snack we headed to Franconia Notch…

.

.

Where the fall color was a bit past peak but still impressive.

.

.

Trees.

.

.

Fall leaves.

.

.

And mountains.

( And if you’ve never experienced autumn in New England? What the hell are you waiting for! )

Now tell me your blood pressure didn’t just drop.

I’ll leaf you to it.

I’m going to post a collection of photos today. I took them this weekend as we were driving the Kancamagus in New Hampshire.

The Kanc is a 36 mile swath of highway cut right through the White Mountains… and this time of year? It’s beyond stunning.

The pictures speak for themselves, so I’ll be quiet and let you enjoy the splendor that is autumn in New England.

A side note – We weren’t the only ones enjoying peak foliage season that day. And in all my years of peeping leaves in this area? I’ve never seen so many people line the roads to gawk. At times traffic was at a dead stop.

All Hail Mother Nature!

And now, experience it in real time.
