last week i went on an afternoon hike with a friend in the white mountains. the trail was the welch-dickey loop, and it was 4.5 miles of exploding views of foliage covered mountains. i’ve lived in the northeast almost my whole life and i’ve never done a proper “leaf-peeping” hike. this was probably the best place to do it. the trail traversed two granite peaks and crossed many granite outcrops so the views were sweeping and almost constant. holy moly! i think i will want to do this hike every fall.
later, we stopped in plymouth to fill our hungry stomachs and i had the best fried mozzarella i’ve ever tasted at six burner bistro. the chef makes his own mozzarella from curds, no big deal. DELICIOUS. besides that, it was nice to go somewhere new and see what’s to offer in a city that isn’t your home (and traverse some mountains you wish were literally in your backyard).
