5: We stayed at Mt Washington Resort on July 17 &18, 2009. Our first weekend away together. We hiked Mt Washington 4 miles.
6: Mount Washington is the highest peak in the White Mountains of New Hampshire | Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail is steep, rocky and more scenic.
7: The trail runs parallel to the road crossing a brook and some water pipes. You continue along the brook at a reasonable grade to a pool at 2.0 miles. | Crossing the brook begins a rough and steep climb parallel to the brook. The trees become scrubby and the trail climbs up a series of rock slabs.
10: The trail finally breaks out above treeline a couple hundred yards before ending at the AMC Lakes of the Clouds Hut at 3.0 miles. This is a major trail junction with several choices including the Crawford Path/Appalachian Trail to Mt Washington and toward Mount Monroe.
13: Breathtaking Views.....
14: One of the most enchanting water-laced trails to be found in all the white mountains.
15: Lakes of the Clouds Hut is located on the southern shoulder of Mount Washington.
16: It took us 4 hours to reach the top
17: Mt Washington 6288 The highest mountain in the northeast. There is a cog railroad running to the summit from the west and an auto road from the east. South of the peak is the Lakes of the clouds.

18: The summit has the Sherman Adams visitors center, tv and radio antennas, the yankee building and the Observatory. It is known for having the worst weather in the world.
