My reason for registering is to confirm my recollection of a trip to Mount Washington in 1975. I believe we (a group of about eight young people - early twenties at that time) took the cog railway to the summit and then decided to walk down. We weren't mountaineers and I recall that the hike down was not difficult at that time. Almost at the bottom we had a choice of going across the cog railway bridge or fording what appeared to be a small rushing creek. My wife was not fond of heights and looking through the railway ties down to the stream did not appeal to her. We climbed down a bank and entered into the frigid stream which was not as easy to traverse as I thought it would be. We managed to get across, but it was probably not the best decision. Does this recollection make sense? Was there a bridge almost at the bottom of the trail that had fairly steep bank on either side? I believe this was in the spring of the year April - May.
