We took the easy route to the top, the Mt. Washington Auto Road. The scenery above tree line in the White Mountains is absolutely gorgeous. It can also be deadly. It's easy to see why so many unwary hikers have died in this area. At the bottom the weather was pleasant and near 70 degrees. When we got to the top we were faced with 20-degree temperatures and 50-mile-per-hour winds. When you go, be sure to check out the tongue-in-cheek video in the gift shop of the guy being served breakfast on the patio while ferocious winds are blowing. It's a scream!
