Most of these photos are from a recent trip (October, 2011) on the Mount Washington Cog Railway in New Hampshire. This is the oldest mountain cog railway in the world, and the second steepest (at a portion of the tracks called Jacob's Ladder). Unfortunately, we did not make it all the way up the mountain, as the winds were about 100 miles per hour and the Wind Chill at the top of the mountain was extremely cold. The summit of Mt Washington is the site of the fastest wind speed ever recorded, at 233mph. High winds like the day we were there are not unusual. On lower parts of the mountain, the weater was quite nice.
