Back Lot

Description

A meadow north of a small pond adjacent to the Mount Washington Auto Road entrance. Provides a backup in case the lawn is filled with picnickers or a south wind is producing too much turbulence.

There is free parking in the parking lots along the public road at the base.

There are flags and banners at the entrance to the auto road that provide clues to the wind direction and velocity.
