Favorite 2018 Autumn Images From The White Mountains

For the last couple of years, since my family knew we would be moving back from Japan, I have been looking forward to the 2017 autumn season in New Hampshire. Don’t misunderstand – Autumn in Japan is amazing. I’m already missing it! I especially miss my yearly trip to Mt. Fuji, which is lovely this time of year.
