The day Choppy and I drove to the top of Mt. Washington, the weather seemed great. Sun, warmth – everything you could ask for. By the time we got to the top of the mountain? It felt like winter. I managed to snap one picture of Choppy on the very cloudy mountaintop before we hightailed it back to lower elevations and warmer temperatures.

My husband and I visited Mt. Washington several years ago. Beautiful and sunny when we started up, but by the time we reached the top we couldn’t see the road and finding a place to park was very scary. Carwyn would not have cared but I was white knuckled.
Mt Washington is known to have very quick & severe weather changes.
Mt. Washington has a tundra climate and holds the record for highest surface wind speed (231 mph) not associated with a hurricane or cyclone. In winter, it can get -45F in January (no idea what the windchill would be). A pretty inhospitable place, but on a good day, the view is magnificent… you just need to bring your winter coat, hat and mittens. 😉
