Yesterday, I was on top of the world, or 6,288 ft. above the clouds on the top of
the summit of Mt. Washington, N.H. It was really hard to stand for this picture!
Home of the World's Worst Weather. We started out in the high 60's and were in the 30's. That is a quick adjustment to your body. The winds were whipping and the ice and rain stung! But, it was an awesome feeling to be up there! We can't wait to do it again!
|They are not kidding! One turn of the wheel in the wrong direction and you're toast!|
Clouds hugging the, "Oh, my dear God!" turn/cliff. Behind and below those puffy white things is about a 5,000 ft. drop into rocks and trees! Ouch!
Snow in August! It's true! I saw it with my own eyes! I was being pelted with ice. The weather while we were at the top inside the observatory. Brrrr!!!!
Post Office at the summit.
Some serious hikers struggling to keep their balance as they make it to the summit.
One future hiker feeling the cold, whipping winds at the top of Mt. Washington. It was hard for him to keep his balance.
