Dangerously erratic weather during Mount Washingtonâ€™s most brutal season, Winter.
Be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions. Leave trip itinerary with friends or family members before you leave. Have Fun!
On Valentine's it was everything but warm and cozy hiking in the Alpine Climate of Mount Washington, New Hampshire. The outside temperature was about 0 to -10 degrees; a wind gust of over 120mph was also recorded on the summit that particular morning, so you can only imagine how cold it really was. The winds were only gusting 60-70mph in this photo.
