White Mountains, NH

It seemed like the whole trip was a build-up to climbing Mount Washington.  We kept seeing it from afar, sometimes clearly enough to spot the many towers on top.  It's clear up there only about 50 days of the year, and as we experienced while we were up there the clarity can be very fleeting.  The weather is extreme to say the least and the wind has been clocked at 231 mph with the highest temperature ever recorded only 72 Fahrenheit.  Snow storms have occurred every month of the year, I was hoping to experience a little snow, either that or a view of the ocean, but didn't get either.  Next time.  They have set a few high temp records in the past few weeks, mostly in the mid-60's.
