Ascent Of Mount Washington

I'd always wanted to climb Mt. Washington. It is one of the more notable walk-ups--great views, history, good trails, lots of company--although not very high. My desire to climb it has waned with age, so on this day, October 15th, we took the cog railway up to the top and back. The cog railway itself is notable, being the first such railway in the world. I have ridden several in Europe, and never imagined it was an American invention!
Great day for the mountain...one of its few clear
days
