So, I made it up and down the mountain without falling down once, which is actually quite an accomplishment for me.
The week began with some beer:
A sampler from Moat Mountain, lovely place to eat and lovely place to stay about 20 miles away from Mt. Washington and nice comfy beds.
Larry came along for the ride and the weather reminded him of traveling on the ocean with all the fog and rain.
The last of the snow from the winter…it wasn’t as impressive as last year since it was all gloomy when we went by in the morning. If we had come down the same trail (which we should have) the pictures would have been much better.
We made it up here in fairly record time for me. 4 miles in just about 4 hours…with the extra weather and some issues with breathing and a large group of people standing in the middle of the trail, so annoying.
A quick picture after we hit the summit going down Lion’s Head.
You can see how different the weather can be in just a few hours. It was lovely on the way down from the summit.
Remember, kiddies! Be Ice Smart! And remember to scream and wave your hands in the air while running away from large ice boulders.
I love $3 pint glasses!
But orgasmic, organic berries are even better!
Next weekend, the Boy and I will join hundreds of others on a climb up Mount Washington as part of a fundraiser for the Mount Washington Observatory. In April of 1934, the fastest surface wind gust in the world (231 MPH) was recorded there…I’ve seen the graph in person and it is just crazy.
I am $40 from the next level of fund raising and would love to be able to hit that mark, if you would be willing to support me I would be very appreciative. The link is here.
