Mt Washington
I did the climb with my 11-year old daughter and guide Marc Chauvin from North Conway. We reached the summit at 1:20 pm Wednesday May 28th. The wind speed at the summit was 42 mph with gusts to 52 mph, the air temperature was 28 degrees and the sky was clear with 80 miles of visibility (we could see the curve of the earth to the east via the Atlantic ocean). We left the parking lot at the base (~2,000 feet) at 9:00 am and reached the summit (6,288 feet) at 1:20 pm. We left the summit at 2:15 pm and arrived back at the car at 5:15 pm. Our route was Tuckerman to Lion Head. There were still a few deep snow fields along the Lion Head trail. We had a wonderful adventure!
