New Hampshire State Highpoint - Mt. Washington via the Auto Road
Several of my family members decided to ascend Mt. Washington while in New Hampshire for a wedding. We took the Auto Road to almost the summit. The last 20 feet or so you have to go by foot, but it was no cake walk. 50-60 mph winds and cold temperatures made the summit quite exciting. Those winds are nothing compare to the record breaking 231 mph wind speed that was recorded in the 1930s, the highest recorded ground windfall recorded to date. Mt. Washington is truly a unique mountain.
