A popular attraction since 1861, the Mt. Washington Auto Road
is a bit intimidating, but this awe-inspiring drive is unforgettable and worthwhile.
After witnessing another traveler's mishap on the mountain, the remainder of our ascent was even more nerve-wracking. But, my trusty Saturn got us safely to the top. Before your visit, review the vehicle requirements and limits at the Auto Road Web site.
