Found a great new trail to the summit of Mount Washington today. We had to take a Tram to get to the trailhead, but it was all easy going from there.

Then there's the easy section through Huntington Ravine.

Here's Jude and I strolling along on our way up.

Some guys tried to follow us, but they couldn't keep up.

Soon we were way ahead of everyone.

This section was the most fun. As you can see, Jude did fine.

Then up the stairs from the parking area.

And finally, the Sherman Adams Building. The chili was excellent!

If anyone is interested, we may take this route again for STP'08.

You have got to be kidding me, is this for real. This is not Mount Washington N.H. This is not Huntungton Ravine, there is foreign words on the bottom of the pictures.

Nope, that's Mount Washington. The back route. Kevin wrote Chinese on those so he could print them in a Chinese newspaper.

I don't know what all this "World's Worst Weather" stuff is all about. We made it in T-shirts today. It was beautiful!

Count me in for that one, it looks like a great adventure. Maybe on the way up Emma can teach me Chinese.

That's on private property, you can only go there twice a year.

My ex used to live right across the road growing up. I knew a few ways to get to the marker without cutting across the now deceased owners driveway. On more than one occasion I had to see the disappointment on peoples faces when they found out the situation.

Actually, Jerimoth Hill is under new ownership and is open to the public. You can now scale this inaccessible peak without the fear of a pantload of rock salt courtesy of the previous owner's thirty ott six.

Although many of the views from the pictures in this TR are similar to the views on the grueling trails of Jerimoth Hill, they were indeed taken on our recent trip to Mount Washington.

The wind blew all the snow into Tuckerman Ravine. Really.

Nice!!! :D

My favorite is the shot of the chains held together with padlocks. Let's hope nobody in front of you has keys... :eek:

This actually looks a bit like my regular morning walk at home in Rhode Island.:cool: We have several hills that look a lot like this - not just Jerimoth. Our dog is particularly fond of the ladders and chains.

On a serious note: ARE ALL THE PEOPLE IN THESE PICTURES COMPLETELY NUTS!!! :confused:

Absolutely spectacular. Where is that, really?

Sure would love to give that a shot. Just not sure I'd like to try building those trails. :)

Mount Washington. Fisher Cat and his BIL Forester Jake built those trails.
