On a guided tour of Mount Washington NH

We are on a trip around the eastern states.  We left and went to Chattanooga TN for a convention stopping off in Macon GA along the way.  Then through Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey ending up north of New York City.  The next day we completed the heavy driving stopping in Tilton NH for a few days.  We took a boat tour on Lake Winnipesaukee the first full day we were thean and up to the Mount Washington Auto Road the next day.  Since I don’t get to really see much scenery while driving we decided to take the guided tour up to the top.

When we arrived it was partly cloudy but we could see up the mountain quite a ways.  Those clouds behind it though were an omen.

They soon started moving in and by the time we left the base there was some spotty rain.  When we reached the first stop it had abated but we were under cloud and had some fog moving in.  At the next stop it was heavier.

Not great for photo ops but, this is a tourism trip and good shots are a bonus.  Further up and the fog was even heaver although the rain had stopped.

I am reliably informed that there is a great view from here.  Some days.  A bowl of chili at the snack bar on the top of the mountain and a visit to the museum were very welcome.

On the way back, we got below the cloud layer and could finally see the view again.  Even with the bad weather, I think this was a very worthwhile trip.

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
