Maya's White Mountain Retreat

In honor of Rosh HaShanah, we decide to take a post-synagogue (or Hillel, which is the Hanover equivalent of synagogue) trip to the White Mountains, up North in New Hampshhire. We were specifically en route to the Kancamagus Highway, which is a 34 mile stretch of "highway" that winds all over the White Mountain National Forest. There are tons of places to stop and hike, walk, take photos, or picnic. We had a great time walking up and down the steam, and hiking up to the Sabbaday Waterfall. Maya totally enjoyed the hiking, especially in the backpack that Moshe and Christie lent us, since Eve is still too small for it. It was very chilly up North - particularly in the mountains. We weren't quite prepared for it, but we made it work. Even though it was a great trip, we agree that we need to go back when the leaves are changing. It'll be even more beautiful then, and we'll be sure to dress more warmly. Anyone wanna come join us?

"This is my family."

"We stopped at a scenic overlook, to eat chips and look at the mountains."

"Daddy put me in this backpack, so we could take a hike together."

"Don't I look tall?"

"Mommy loved the scenery, but I just loved the chips."

"C'mon guys! Time to go! I have the keys and my chip, so let's hit the road again."

"We walked up and down this pretty stream. Daddy did some good maneuvering around the big rocks."

"Daddy took this goofy picture while Mommy and I were making faces at each other."
