Well I am off to Mt. Washington, NH. I am taking the cog railway up on Thursday to the summit. And then Friday I am driving up on the autoroad to the summit. Looks to be some nice weather with partly cloudy skies and potentially clear skies on Friday. Winds should be pretty gusty also as a low pressure pulls away to the northeast along with a cold front. I will be sure to take lots of pictures and write a full blog on my experience when I return. Here is an observation blog that I use when I am away.
