I enjoy hiking ALMOST as much as throwing my body out of a plane. One of many reasons I still live in Boston!. These are some pictures from my annual assault on Mt. Washington, New England's highest peak (6288 ft).
|Here is Mt. Washington, shot from an outcrop called the Boot Spur. The bottom portion is the famous Tuckerman's Ravine where people ski it's treacherous slopes through May!|
|Another shot of Mt. Washington. No wonder they call it "The Rockpile"|
|View up close and personal with the final ascent|
|View from the Summit. Today was a rare day, you could actually see something! Most of the time the summit is clouded in, and the maximum temperature is in the lower 70s.|
|Mt. Washington has one thing most mountains don't, a Cafeteria. That and bathrooms, a gift shop, and most importantly (for those of you that know me well) a coke machine.|
|Another view from the top. You can see the Cog Railway, which takes tourists to the top. There is also an auto road where you can drive up. I prefer my legs.|
