Appalachian Trail Happiness: Mt. Washington

Appalachian Trail Happiness: Mt. Washington

IMGP8512How glorious a meeting the sun gives the mountains ~ John Muir

So not having the opportunity or enough functional knee strength to do Mt. Washington, I decided to ride up it in a tourist van.  I was granted with a relatively sunny day on the mountain something to be very grateful for on the mountain.  Once on top I immediately when looking for hiking trash and found these three characters who immediately chastised me for riding up the mountain.

It was impressive to see how many trails crossed at the summit and there were a fair number of day hikers who had done the summit.

AT crossingA really cool way to summit the mountain is to come up on one of the cog trains.
