If it is a nice sunny day, make sure to take an hour and visit Mount Equinox while you are in Manchester. It is a hilly climb (about 5 miles) of twists and turns but once at the top the view of the mountains is breathtaking! It is also interesting to read the history of the Carthusian Monks who have a monastery in the mountains (however, not opened to the public). At the top of the mount is an information center which traces the history of the Monks and what a "typical" day consists of in the life of a cloistered monk. There are hiking trails as well, however, we opted for the car ride up and enjoyed the view along the way. We were told by some of the people in town the drive is only worth taking on a clear, sunny day and they were absolutely correct!
