Last fall we went to the observatory at the top of Mt. Washington (New Hampshire, highest mt. in the Eastern US) and they offer this image as a poster there. It's a great image though, and I've selected it even though it will load pretty slowly on modems. It's worth the wait in high resolution I think.

The weather conditions at the top of the mountain are often bizarre and quite different from conditions at the base. There can be snow in May and September (and they've recorded snow even in July and August). There can be wind gusts over 100MPH; the record recorded there is 231, which is also the world record for wind recorded anywhere! The average wind speed is about 40.

The people at the observatory have cats as companions, and this one happened to be caught outside during a condition where water droplets freeze instantly on cold surfaces.

I just hate seeing zero responses to one of my favorite pictures.

I would have but i couldn't think of an entertaining quip at the time =)

If its any consolation i saved this and gave it to my girlfirend who loved it (bigtime animal lover, 6 cats, 2 dogs and +100 fish)

And it has had well over 600 views...

Glad to hear it is getting good circulation! I first saw the image last year in the gift shop on the top of Mt. Washington. I show it to my cat to let him know that things could be a whole lot worse. I have given it to cat loving friends as well, all of whom love it.

really cute cat

That's a great cat. You can find a lot of Cheap DC Hotels that allow cute pets like this to stay with you. There are even a few of the Luxury Washington DC Hotel that might allow them.

Shawnee123  Thursday Jan 29 08:44 PM

I don't know...I think it's just a person using a great opportunity to make the connection, for us, about cats and hotels.

Wait, what?

Oh Alan, we barely knew ye.

Yur katz is outside, yur dogz is inside. Why?

Highest in Northeast US

Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina is a bit higher, but not nearly the same weather.



Undertoad  Monday Feb 2 08:36 PM

WOW, it's true! I stand corrected!



glatt  Tuesday Feb 3 09:12 AM

That kind of blew me away too. I simply knew that Mt. Washington was the highest. What else did that school teach me that is totally wrong?

The second highest point in eastern North America, Mount Craig at 6,647 feet (2,026 m) is roughly a mile to the north of Mount Mitchell.

It is the third highest state high point in the eastern U.S., after Mount Mitchell, North Carolina – 6,684 ft (2,037 m) – and Clingmans Dome, Tennessee – 6,643 ft (2,025 m) – and is the most prominent peak in the Eastern United States.
One way or another, Wiki lies.
