Headed off to Loon Mountain to give the girls some fun. Sun's still shining.

On on the way we stopped off and saw our first covered bridge 'Albany' (one of the 58 they have). We also walked the Lower Falls and the Basin. There's not a lot of water around as apparently they've been in a drought.

Got to Loon Mountain which looked deserted only to find out that they had closed for the season other than the cable car to the top of the mountain. Girls disappointed as we're looking forward to the adventure activities, zip lining, rock climbing etc. So headed off into Lincoln and the girls went to Alpine Adventures, the roping place. We only did the ropes course that was in town, but perhaps we should have done the full zip line, but we couldn't decide. Girls are hot, off for drinks at Dunkin Donuts and onto Fraconia Notch and walked the Flume Gorge. That was a great walk. Note the bear cave.

Then onto the Canon Mountain Aerial Tramway. It was nice and the guide was very informative, but no so interesting. The view from the top is stunning and you can see for miles, all the

Construction was incredible. The beams are really curved. They are this size to allow for people with wagons carrying hay and the bridge was covered to keep the rain and snow out therefore doubling the life of the bridge.
way into Canada, but its still bush.

We're all so exhausted and hungry, we've gone straight for tea at the Muddy Moose, not even changing clothes. Geez, the foods good, but the service is also amazing.
