Yup, you read that right.

Whenever we go to Loon Mountain up in Lincoln, NH, we always eat breakfast at Flapjacks Pancake House.  They may be famous for pancakes, but their french toast is seriously the best I’ve ever had.  Anyhow, when we were there a couple of weeks ago, we were seated at the table directly under this flapjack gallery:


Here are are some close ups:






A few of them were geared towards locals, which made it that much cooler:


FYI: The Old Man of the Mountain was a series of cliff ledges located on the side of Cannon Mountain (in the White Mountains of New Hampshire), that, when viewed from the north, appeared to be the jagged profile of a face.  You may have seen it on the New Hampshire quarter.

However, it collapsed on May 3, 2003.


FYI:  The Kancamagus Highway is a 34.5 mile scenic drive along NH’s Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire and you guessed it – it’s windy.


Sorry for the glare on some of the pictures.  We were seated near a window and I was too chicken to ask the people seated by the blinds to close them so I could take pictures (they looked grumpy).

The Van Gogh is my favorite, which is yours?
