Mount Washington

Kellisa's 9th State Highpoint

Mount Washington, NH
6,288ft.

June 2009

Highpointers have three options for gaining the summit of New Hampshire: hike, drive or ride the Cog Railway. Since Kellisa loves trains, we decided to ride the railway up Mount Washington.

Not satisfied with close, I carried Kellisa up the rocky trail to the true highpoint:
