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.

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.

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.

Highest in Northeast US

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