My girlfriend and I took a trip up Mount Washington yesterday and what an experience. I’ve hiked it, drove up it, even on a four wheeler and have taken the Cog railroad up it but never in the winter.
Condition were extreme to say the least, -5 actual temperatures but the wind was blowing 40-50 MPH with higher gusts to 60-65 and the wind chill was -50.
We got to the 4300 foot elevation as the snow coach can’t get past the snow drifts to get to the summit. I was a little hesitant on going up under such extreme conditions but was glad I did. It has to be one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done and words just can’t describe what it’s like to visit such a hostile environment.
Just thought I would post a few pictures and share, hope you enjoy.
