I am very afraid of heights.
Husband and I got up at 2 Am, to drive about 2 hours ,to be able to drive up to the highest peak in the north east, 8 miles straight up! MT WASHINGTON! To see the sun rise. They open the gates early
3 times a year and since it was suppose to be clear and beautiful. And since we
have never been to the top we went.
To be able to see this. We could see several states and into Canada.
The white you see is not water it is clouds we were above them.
This is also the place for the highest winds ever recorded on earth. Over 200mph Which may have been broken a year or so ago. This is one of the original buildings that was built up there. as you can see it is chained to the rocks to keep the roof on during the high winds of winter.
They now have newer buildings and run experiments among other things.
When we got to the top it was about 30 and the winds were blowing. We were
dressed for it.
The worst part going down!!!!!! This is a hair pin curve and you can see no
guard rails. The worst part was this part of the road was under construction and when you met
another car you had to get way over in lose dirt. I chose not to look and husband was
trying not to saying anything but when we got to the bottom he said that part scared him.
When you go down you have to pull over in lots of places to let your brakes cool down.
It was an amazing experience and I am so glad I got the courage to go.
After this we joined Miss B and our daughter for an afternoon of Storyland.
needless to say we were super tired when we got home and took naps.
Have a great week everyone!
