    Default ? for Jim S

    Jim on the last page of this quarters Windswept there's a picture of a guy next to the Tip Top House you took. The description says to look to his right to see something but the printed image is pretty dark so it's hard to make out what it is they're talking about. What are they referring to?

    Thanks
    Bill

    Excellent Question. The picture printed in B&W has such consistent tones that you can't see the second person at all. From the comments last year in June, here's the online version, where you can see the second person:

    Hope that helps. I think this picture tells a great story for a Mount Washington Summer day!

    It doesn't look like he is having a lot of fun at the moment. He looks cold!

    Thanks Jim! I starred at that pic for 20 min last night and couldn't find the other person! I thought this was some sort of Where's Waldo puzzle. Of course, the caption says "to his right" and now we can see the person is on his left.

    The picture does tell a great story. It goes like this " I didn't dress warm enough..I'll now curl into the fetal position to retain body heat." I think we know how it ends! "I'll either dress warmer or not come here again!"
    "LIVE FREE OR DIE...DEATH IS NOT THE WORST OF ALL EVILS." Gen. John Stark. "by reason of much foule weather and Extreme Bad Woods to travel in..." From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.
