Mount Washington Auto Road located in Pinkham Notch, New Hampshire really is a Drive to the Sky!  We took a ride up the Mount Washington Auto Road last week when the visibility was over 80 miles.  It was beautiful.  The whole family enjoyed the information CD that played in our car on the drive up.  At the top we were able to get handicap parking and wheelchair my dad into the canteen to enjoy the views of the Presidential Mountain Range and a coffee.  We were even able to use the service elevator to get downstairs to the museum in the lower lever of the Mt Washington Observatory.  If travelers are agile they can also enjoy the Tip Top House Museum and take a picture on the summit of Mt Washington with the sign and elevation.   Some of the alpine garden flowers we saw in the museum were also in bloom and tine but colorful to see. Mark your calendar that the Mt Washington Auto Road in Gorham, NH will open early 3 times this summer of 2012 for a Sunrise drive to the Summit:  330 AM June 24th, 400 AM July 29th, 430 AM August 26th  and just $25 for car and driver plus $8.00 additional passenger.  Bartlett Inn guests will receive discount coupons for a FREE passenger.  Call Bartlett Inn at  1 800 292 2353.
