January 16, 2009 The Mountain and Mother Nature By KEITH MULVIHILL.
At 6,288 feet, New Hampshire’s Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast, but its weather can make it seem almost Himalayan.
Check out this excellent NYTimes article on a recent day hike up to the top of Mt. Washington. Be sure to click on the audio slide show. Makes you want to get out there, even it was 16 below zero, like it was here this morning.
