Hi Kirk,

I think these are some of the coolest photos I've ever seen. The picture quality is so good too for the time in which they were taken. Thanks for finding this. I think I'm going to have to see if I can contact the owner of the pics and see if I can link it up or use them in my blog. What a great piece of history!!! Love it! Thanks again for sharing the link.

Nice find Kirk! How'd you happen to find these? Just browsing around Flickr?

Not sure, but I think I might have spotted Brad in one of those pictures :)

Kirk ~ I agree, nice find

Mark ~ Did you hear me laugh in RI when I read your comment about Brad.

Actually I did think I heard something of a distant chuckle recently.

Hey, I know that Brad has been on the forum tonight and I haven't heard him deny it yet. Seems perfectly plausible to me.

A friend of mine sent me the link, not sure where he found it. That's what's great about the internet, one person finds it and shares, and then everyone else does the same :)

I was off at church while you folks were attacking me. So, I will be kind and say that I did not start to climb Mt Washington till 2 or 3 years later. So, I could not be in the pictures. But, they sure do look familiar.

Attacking? Surely it wasn't meant as an attack. And I was only off by a couple of years. And I've seen some of the pictures of you on Mt Washington as a kid. Looked a lot like the ones here.

Ok - Ok. Mommy! They are picking on me - again.

We have a few old pictures on our Fotki web site. But, we could use a lot more.

I thought attacking was a bit strong.

OK - OK. Mommy! seems more appropriate.

I agree - attacking is a bit strong. They are just jealous I can pop over to the trails in an hour and be there any time I want.:cool:

An hour and a half is not bad. Might be tough for a daily commute. I can be at PNVC in an hour with a stop to get snacks for the hike.

A big difference between NH and Maine is the tax structure. No income or sales tax in NH. However, the state has to get income somewhere and many people have found property taxes to be high. In several comparison cases I have looked at property in Maine is a lot cheaper. All a part of the tradeoffs. But, it is very clear to me that the views of Mt Washington are better from Maine than from NH. In NH there always seems to be something in the way of the good view. We get great views of The Mountain all over and around our lakes.

Those were some great photos. It's a shame they had them on such a dreadful site like flickr, which makes viewing them in a timely and efficient manner almost impossible.

Again, good photos though.

I know what you mean brad, plus you guys have mt katahdin which I think has a more impressive view from a distance.
