Disappointed with Summit construction
I'm new to this forum, and enjoying all of your posts. I attended Camp Wachusett, Holderness, NH, Little Squam Lake during 1967 - 1968. We hiked the Southern Presidentials to the Tuckerman Ravine shelters, then the next day over top of Mt. Washington and down though the Great Gulf. Since 1968, I have climbed Mt. Washington three other times, the last in the late 1970s. Back in the 1960s, Mt. Washington just had the Summit and Tip Top Houses, but now, the Observatory, plus a bunch of other stuff. I am really disappointed with all the development, because it takes away the incredible experience of Mt. Washington (I remember sitting on the Mt. Washington cone near the top, just taking in the feel of the unbalanced weather). Is the State of NH responsible for the development of Mt. Washington State Park? Also, I have read that the trails are much more crowded, now. It's all a shame.
