My very first train ride ever went to Crawford's Notch, a 5 hour trip through heaven - winding up into the mountains on roads not available by car. The train chugged up into mountains that were technicolored with the changing trees.
As far as you could see there were colors of all kinds - deep in the valleys and up on the mountain ridges until the snow took over on the very mountaintop.

Once we got to the end of the line, we were treated with the first snowfall of the season - when we arrived, there was over 5" of snow. We got off the train and threw snowballs at each other!

We dry camped at WalMart while in North Conway - snow capped mountains and multi-colored trees - and the price was certainly right!
