Top of the Morning
Sip morning coffee while watching the seductive red-orange sunrise glow from the top of the Northeast's highest peak. Three times a summer, Mount Washington's
winding Auto Road opens early (June 28 at 3:30 a.m., July 26 at 4 a.m., Aug. 30 at 4:30 a.m.), and fans get behind the wheel for a pre-dawn drive to the summit, where nature's curtain unveils everything from fickle fog to a sea of mountains. Mount Washington Auto Road, Route 16, Pinkham Notch, 603-466-3988, mountwashingtonautoroad.com.
