Mt. Washington Hike

Very fun day hiking up Mt. Washington with Kate! It was her first time there, so that was a lot of fun. Hiked up, watched the runners at the finish line for the road race and then hiked back down. Fun time! I'll let the pics do the talkin'.

Runners near the finish. 
Kate as we were about to head down. 

Snowball fight at Tucks!

Melting ice field.

Bizarre alien plant. 

Looking up Tuckerman's Ravine. 
Hiked 8.4 miles in 6:20 (include stops, except at summit).
Rugged trails.
Insanely hilly.
Around 50 degrees on the summit, lower 70s in the valley, partly cloudy.
New Balance MT110, shorts, short sleeved shirt, long sleeved shirt (summit).
