Climbing Mt Washington



Jake Maarse and I arrived back at the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center at 2:45 pm eight-and-three-quarter hours after Id set out from it and Jakes wife, Mary, took this photograph of the two of us. It had taken me three-and-three-quarter hours to climb the mountain; it also took me three-and-three-quarter hours to come down it, which shows just how careful I was while descending sections of the Lion Head trail.
