A Summit by Railroad – Mt. Washington, NH

November 2, 2008 at 10:19 pm 3 comments

October 17th dawned clear and cold, at -3 degree Farhenheit on the summit, but I still thought it was a beautiful fall day to bag Mt. Washington with my wife, daughter, son and mother….. via the old cog railway.

Headin up

Cheeseburgers were purchased at the base and after an enjoyable 1 hour trip up the tracks, we reached the summit. After trekking nearly 10 yards to the summit post and nearly freezing GroovyGirl and GroovyBoy in the 25 MPH wind, we headed into the lodge where cheeseburgers were consumed and coffee was used to thaw out Nana.

Cheeseburgers consumed: 4, GroovyDad, GroovyMom, Groovy Girl and Nana (the 76 year old Cheeseburger Summitter).

The trip down was without incident.

    I’m sure those ten yards were just grueling so good for you all!

    GroovyDad,
    It sure looks like winter from the pictures. That lines up with the 3 below zero temperature. I was hoping to read about you bivying at Edmonds Col. Brrrrr.
