Well done on the drive! The road hadn't opened for the summer when we were there at all, hence the cafe being closed.

Anji,

Come back soon. I long ago decided that you never see bears or moose if ytou are looking (having taken too many visitors on attempts to see them).

Both are most likely seen when least expected and often at dawn or dusk. We have reliably seen moose in Errol but have usually been there for a couple of days. Our neighborhood bears tend to pop out of the woods from time to time and as soon as they hear people, they take off. Everyone knows there are two families becuase a neighbor has video on their security camera. I have a photo of a baby bear outside my kitchen window my son took.

One good thing about not seeing them the first time, is you have to come again, maybe a different time of year. But also be out at dawn.

Just catching up with your wonderful trip report.

We also did a road trip starting in Boston, then up through Vermont for a couple of days, before heading West to friends just outside Buffalo. Over the border to Niagara and Niagara on the Lake, before more friends in Toronto.
We then headed North East to cross back over at Cornwall and onto Carroll as we too went on The Cog Railway, but the early Steam Hauled on.
What an experience and like you, it was shrouded in low cloud and a howling wind and rain at the top, but we wouldn't have missed it for the world.
A few more days with more friends, then a drive via the Kancamagus back to Boston for a few nights.

We just caught the start of fall and some of the colours were amazing and we even caught a Town Fair where we began to think we were an extra attraction as it seemed everyone wanted to talk to us!

Thank you for sharing your trip and evoking lots of good memories

Sounds like an amazing trip too! We loved Niagara on the Lake - id you go on the jet boat down the rapids? Town fairs are wonderful - so much to see!

Catching up on this as part of my last minute panic planning for the New England trip that starts in a week! Random question about the cog railway - do you face forwards when you are going up and down or is one of them backwards? I can't travel backwards or I will get sick!

It looked like such a great day and the weather at the top was crazy!

You face forwards on the way up and on the way back. They move the back of the seat so that it's on the other side - very clever! You get an allocated seat. Because we booked so far in advance we were in the front row going up and the back row coming down. Good fun! Have a great trip!

Thanks so much for letting me know We may not do it as I don't know it we will have time, but it is good to know it is an option if there is availability on the day/ day before Amazing to have got the front row as well!
