It’s Columbus Day Weekend and it’s the end of tourist season in NH. With the late autumn foliage this year the colors have not yet peaked but it’s time for us visitors to get out of town. Our campground for the last two nights closes at noon on Monday. We chose today drive through Franconia Notch and begin our southbound journey. It’s not the road we remember having traveled through the notch back in 1976, it’s now an interstate highway, and with the pouring rain from the remnants of Hurricane Nate we were not inclined to stop at the Old Man of the Mountain Profile Plaza or Flume Gorge. We journeyed on through Vermont, where every little town it seems has a Fall Festival today, and into New York. Campgrounds are getting scarce but we did succeed in getting a site at a KOA near Oneonta not far from Cooperstown. With tomorrow’s forecast looking like an all day rain we’re booked for two nights here.

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
