Weekend Events

2010-06-18 20:32:30.000 – Sabrina Lomans,  Summit Intern


Today was a busy day at the summit! The clearing out of yesterday’s fog revealed a mostly clear day which would be inspiration enough to come to the summit of Mount Washington. Additionally, the weekend’s upcoming festivities (fathers day and the road race) and the winding down of bike week, there were certainly plenty of reasons to come out and explore.

However, for those who are planning on coming to Mount Washington tomorrow, the Auto Road will be running on a slightly different schedule. Due to the road race, the Auto Road will be closed to all traffic in the morning but will reopen at 1 pm.
