I hit the trail today since it looked like a decent weather window amid a week of storms and started the climb up Mt. Washington. It was about an 11 mile day today. Did not reach the summit yet, but did make it to Lake of the Clouds Hut.
The trail was wet and rocky and steep in places. In most places the granite rock gave decent footing.
I was up in the clouds all day long. It was raining on and off. Winds were around 60 mph all day. To follow the trail I looked for large rock cairns in the thick clouds. I was above treeline for the last half of the day.
At the Lake of the Clouds Hut, I stayed in a room called the Dungeon. It really is, but it was $10 versus $140 for a bunk and meals in the hut.
I got lucky today with the weather. Tomorrow if everything is willing, I will push over the Mt. Washington and maybe a few other peaks. I don’t think the weather will be as nice.
