Mt. Washington Redux: July 4th, 2008

Unlike our previous visit (wind gusts to 50 mph, visibility 35 ft.), this was a flawlessly clear day--a view of five states, and an unnerving view, too, of just how high up we were riding...

Like all intrepid tourists, we cannot resist being photographed at the summit: "I claim this mountaintop!"

At the top of the mountain: the Weather Observatory, the famous and picturesque train (Drew talking to engineer) and Marty, the Observatory cat!

Here Drew prepares the bike for the brake-punishing trip back down the mountain.
