Every year since we have been married Shawn and I have our own little tradition. We've traveled to the top of Mount Washington via the auto road and taken a photo. Despite being in the throes of a tremultous first few weeks of caring for a newborn (see my last post) I wanted to make sure that for the third year we were able to make the same trip.
So, the other day we loaded up the car, the baby, ourselves, and traveled the two plus hours through the White Mountain National Forest to the base of Mount Washington. It was a great day full of foliage and a lot of awesome sights.
The three of us, even three week old miss Emily, got to pose at the peak for a photo-op. It was a gorgeous day where we could see for miles and the temperature at the peak was in the sixties. Three years down, dozens to go...
I love this tradition.
And in case you are curious here are the other photos from previous years...
1st Anniversary: We could only go to 4,000 feet in elevation due to severe snow and ice. They made us turn around half up, but I snapped a photo of us at the highest spot we could go, thus starting the tradition.
2nd Anniversary: Actually made it to the peak this year where it was a whopping thirty degrees with a harsh wind. At the bottom it was seventy and sunny.
