We left Echo Lake early in the morning and drove to the Mount Washington Hotel. We asked the concierge there about hiking trails. We were going to hike to the top of Mt. Washington, but the weather called for dangerous storms and 40 mph winds. So, we did a 5 mile hike to the Arethusa Falls and Frankenstein Cliffs instead. I would say it was 150% humidity, but at least it was rather cool....and the sights were awesome.
From there, we drove 2-1/2 hours to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. It is a cool town with a bunch of lobster boats and restaurants surrounding the harbor. We met some great locals; one who played for the Red Sox (and the Norfolk farm team) in the mid-90's and another who graduated from Radford in the late 60's.
We stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn since the campgrounds were miles from the harbor. The Inn also has a marina with a laundry so tomorrow we will try to hit the laundry....we are getting to the critical time.
