HIKING

Hiked 6288-ft up to the summit of Mt. Washington known as Home of the World’s Worst Weather.  It was thrilling, adventurous experience with breath-taking scenic beauty of White Mountains. http://www.mountwashington.org/

As Mt Washington is known for the home of worst weather condition. Once you reach up the summit you can experience bitter cold, dense fog, sometimes heavy snow and very windy. But it’s one of the popular and famous among the experience hikers. It’s also one of the highest peaks in Northeast region.

We booked our motel in nearby town Gorham. Early morning we grabbed our breakfast and started our hike around 9am as we wanted to hike up and get earlier to summit during the day light. We decide to hike up “Tuckerman Ravine Trail”.  We split our group in two (one group of guys and other group of girls). Guys completed their hike in 4 hours where as girls took almost 6-7 hours as we were hiking and enjoying the nature beauty as well. We got lucky to have the best weather temperature, it was up to 60degF until we reached up. Up at summit temperature was 32degF with 30mph wind. It was freezing at summit. But overall experience was amazing.
