Another view from the Tram's "home" at the base of the mountain ... yep, we went up there! The Tram can hold 80 people in the summer - 70 in the winter when they're in heavier clothing & toting skies & such. Truthfully? I wouldn't want to be in there with that many people but ... I guess if you want to get to the top bad enough ....



As we climbed the mountain, Kel snapped this one, looking back down ... The trams don't turn around & go back down (there are 2). Being trams & not gondolas, they go up, then go backwards, back down ...





Looking down from the observation tower at the top of Cannon, you see the only road that goes through Franconia Notch. The area in the middle that goes off the main road is the campground the guys use in November.





Tom & Kelli had to play on "jenga rock" as the guys call it. Their actual campsite is off the right, across an open field - but this rock serves as the base for their jenga game (boy, that doesn't look like it's spelled right!). They stack firewood or 4x4's or whatever monstrous sized wood they've grabbed for the year - and play jenga. Whoever makes the pile fall has to climb down the embankment or something like that ... All I know is, it's a true example of boys being boys ... no matter the size of their toys! ;o)
