NH has the White Mountains and also has Mount Washington....which owns a couple of wind records and severe weather. My son has driven up the Auto Road...it's scary...no guard rails....and very steep...it's on my bucket list.

What most folks in the Rocky Mtn states don't understand (and never will understand until they hike one) is that a 4000 Ft mtn in the NH Whites is like a 10000 ft mtn in the Rockies. Thin air is not really an issue in the Whites like it is with the high peaks out west, but tree line in NH is only about 4200 ft. Winter weather conditions are that severe. Also, the granite is not "rotten rock" like out west so many of the trails have much steeper grades. 1000 ft/mile elevation change is fairly common in the Whites.

I've hiked all 48 of the 4000 ft peaks in the NH White Mtns at least 3 times including Mt Washington which I've hiked 6 or 8 times. There is no better way to get yourself in shape for a mountain hunt IMO.

The highest point in Ohio is in the Bellfontaine Ridge, which my farm is on the edge of and is only 1550 feet above sea level.

The Appalachians, in Ohio are actually considerably lower, though they look taller, because of the surrounding land.

The Bellfontaine Ridge splits the storms coming in from the West and makes most of them go around my farm on both sides. The storms merge back together again, about 6 miles out. The ridge also makes it to dark to shoot before the end of legal shooting time, by blocking the setting sun.

Thats a fact....

The incredible diverse spectrum of fall colours in the east is astounding in beauty. I have really wished that all those spectrum hues were an indigenous part of the west....but- they aren't....in such intensity...passion....lovely shock to the eyes.....I will note, that in every town I have seen in the west .....north Idaho, Montana......all those huge glorious trees planted years ago along the streets all show that breathless color the very same as they do in the east.

We can all be in sublime smiles in enjoying all these astounding colours , from east to west....south to north....

Life lived.....tis a mighty thing !!
