  • Mount Washington is the highest mountain in the White Mountains, 2000 metres high. You can all the way to the top. You can choose to drive, or with the steepest train course that exists ($ 69.00 per person) or with a small van if you don't dare to drive away. So we are going to drive, but also $38.00 but well worth the effort. You get all sorts of instructions something can happen and what you should do. Also you get a CD with it for the way there and the way back where the history which developed around the mountain has played is explained. It is a narrow road, along abysses, without guardrail and partly a gravel road. Pretty scary and also a lot of traffic. It was a holiday weekend here, Columbusdag on Monday, so many people were free. At some point you come above the tree line and you get a kind of lunar landscape. Very beautiful. All the way on top of the top is a weather station. This mountain has the worst weather of America and the wind that measured here is is the most powerful ever measured in the world. But we had above 18 degrees and plenty of Sun. That seems quite exceptional. Usually lies in the clouds. But what is the point to move up to drive over that kind of weigh?!? Above you have a kind of museum and there is a list of the people who died during the past 100 years trails. With name, date and reason of the accident. The there are 157 so far. On our way we have small trails run, but ... you can also walk all the way up. We found the car a bit more comfortable. When we were back down we have delicious picnic at 25 degrees in the Sun. Fun to do.

  • I've put on a separate review under 'Mount Washington Auto Road' specifically about the drive. This is about facilities and activities at the summit. Weather was good on the day we were there so had g...  more »
