Halloween from the Summit

2015-10-31 17:11:28.000 – Mike Carmon, Co-Director of Summit Operations


Happy Halloween from the summit!


It’s hard to believe how dramatically the weather changed from yesterday to today–it’s almost as if Mount Washington has dressed itself in a costume of sunshine, calm winds, and warm temperatures for Halloween 2015!

After winds in excess of 100 mph on Friday, with gusts as high as 123 mph, conditions took a big turn today.

The more placid weather conditions allowed us to get out and enjoy the sunshine!


One of our “friends” that we met last Halloween came back for a visit, and we were sure to put him to work.


We dressed him up in Eastern Mountain Sports gear.


Even Marty got in on the Halloween spirit!
