Change Over a Week

What a difference a week can make on the summit. When I arrived yesterday, the summit was a whole new world. The snow pack had dramatically decreased and the temperatures had risen into the forties. Winds were calm and visibility was ninety miles proving to be a beautiful day. As I have been saying in my past comments, I am excited to have spring on the way. The early summer hiking season will soon be upon us and it will be important to be prepared. As temperatures warm up in the valley the summit will still have it’s cold and harsh days. As you head out to soak up the beautiful weather on Mount Washington, be sure you are prepared and check the forecast prior to heading up.
