Locals call this highway “The Kanc.”  It is a beloved scenic route through the White Mountains, and the fall colors are stunning.  I mainly want to share the photos.  The Forest Service wanted to charge people for everything — even hiking or just parking next to the river for a minute.  Where I come from we don’t pay to use our own public forest land, and I refused to pay here.  For my trip to the river I parked across the highway outside the gate of a closed forest road, then hiked down and across the highway to the river.  Although this was free it was still technically against the rules because there was a prohibition on blocking the closed gate.  If the road’s closed anyway what difference does it make?  I thought it would be fine since it was after the end of the federal employees’ working day.  This was pre-gov’t shutdown, of course.
