22 June 2014 (Day 110) – Amazing day hiking! Climbed 7 peaks within the Presidential Range of the White Mountains: Mts Pierce, Franklin, Monroe, Washington, Clay, Jefferson, and Madison. It was a bluebird day with unlimited visibility, 5 MPH winds, and plenty of sun. Days like this are very rare on Mt Washington. In summer, there are an average of 4 clear days per month (2 per month in winter). Winds are rarely below 20 MPH. I got really lucky.
The view from the summit of Mt Washington was awe inspiring. The White Mountains stretching into the distance surrounded by green valleys were beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice. I’ve always wanted to climb Mt Washington and am thrilled I had the chance to do so on this hike.
