Hi, I'm new here. Been to the observatory a few times....once when I was a youngin', and twice with my meteorology buddies. As you can imagine, as a meterology nut, kmwn is a kinda mecca, if you will.

This June I'll be hiking up it for the first time. I'm excited and a little nervous, but I can't wait!!:D

Driving up was fun, espcially since one of our passengers was deathly afraid of heights.....love to point out the views to her.

ok i know this is gonna be controversial and i don't mean to criticise and this is only my opinion, but i think it is shameful to drive up mt washington unless you're handicapped.

He is usually guilty of something. His name is Baba O'Riley. He is a one-eyed bucktoothed, polydactyly cat with one eye due to Feline Herpes He caught it drivin' up the road.

no doubt caused by the unusual stress of driving a car.

Man o man.... cats drivin cars up the auto road? What is this world coming too? Before you know it, cats and dogs will be sleepin together!

I too have abused the leisure of the autoroad..... recently too! On my 45th birthday this past Sunday in order to facilitate skiing the East snowfields on an exceptionally hot day. Sooooo, it was my birthday and can do what I want! So there!

Normally I climb this rockpile about a dozen times and more each year, most often in the winter. Does this make me any less a person having taken the road? Who cares! My sanity is questionable to begin with and if you have issues, I'ld like to meet you in a dark ravine some night. ;)

It's there, it's entertaining, why not abuse it occasionally? :p

Let see 10-4=6 hrs to climb the rock, plenty of time. Tuck tr is very hike'able at that hour. Also a lot easier to find a parking space.

There should be no road to the top. What worse than to hike for 3 or 4 hours and end up in a parking lot full of cars, motorcycles, a.t.v. etc. People could still get to the top by the Cog. The cog is even open in winter.

After hiking up, I coulndn't agree more. Close the road to tourists!
