Busy Times for Extreme Mount Washington

It’s been a busy week at Extreme Mount Washington! Although the weather hasn’t been the greatest, we have seen scores of hardy visitors arriving each day to experience the mountain. We have had events this week that brought in guests to enjoy the information that our museum has to offer. The Mount Washington Auto Road Hillclimb brought several visitors from all around the world to enjoy the experience. The museum was filled with great athletes that completed an enormous feat of climbing to the top of the mountain on their bicycles. It was great seeing the look of such an awesome accomplishment on the riders’ faces.

If you haven’t visited us yet, come up on the Cog Railway, Auto Road, or hike to the summit and be sure to stop by and pay a visit to the Extreme Mount Washington Exhibit. We’ll see you here!

Observer Footnote: Have you ever wondered about bird migrations in the White Mountains? Join us this Wednesday evening, August 20, at 7PM at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway for our final Science in the Mountains presentation titled, ‘Fall Migration in the White Mountains’. We’ll see you there!
