An autumn blush colors trees along a secluded stream in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Part of the Appalachian Mountains, the Whites, as they're called locally, are home to 6,300-foot (1,916-meter) Mount Washington, tallest mountain in Northeastern United States and record-holder for the fastest winds on Earth—231 miles an hour (372 kilometers an hour).
