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.
