Mount Washington in Winter

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.

    I loved the several winter day hikes I took in 2001 on sunny days in the White Mountains and prefer them to other hikes in the other seasons. Haven’t tried any in threatening nor bad weather as I was always solo and not an experienced overnight hiker.
    interesting that Mt Washington made the February 2009 National Geographic which just arrived today.
    Keep the stimulation coming, Opie!
