A mountain region in northern New Hampshire, part of the Appalachian Mountain Range and containing Mt. Washington, highest peak in the northeast US and site of the highest recorded windspeed ever, 231 mph in 1934. Mt. Washington is also the place where you can take the bus up and buy a bumper sticker that says This Car Climbed Mount Washington, and stick it on your car when you get back to the parking lot. Or you could actually drive up there, or even take your motorcycle, like my insane father did. They also sell bumper stickers saying This Bike Climbed Mount Washington.

The White Mountains are considered a very tourist-y area, with beautiful fall foliage, many ski resorts open for winter, and serene hiking trails and lakes in spring and summer.
