Memorial Day Weekend

white_mountain_national_forest_mt_washington_rangeNaomi and I went to the White Mountain National Forest on Saturday. The weather was hot and humid—unusual for this time of year, especially since the temperatures reached 93°F. This is also one of the busiest weekends to travel to this park.
