In this image from last winter, there is a glow on Mount Washington in the snow. The striking peak with its observatory at the summit is home to the “World’s Worst Weather“, but it certainly looks soothing (and cold) from this safe distance.
Taking in the view at The Mount Washington Hotel.
Shot earlier this year in the throes of winter in March, this sunset shot from Gunstock features Mount Washington in the distance. Lately I’ve been particularly drawn to pastels and natural landscapes, and this image has the beauty of both – with a splash of Lake Winnipesaukee mixed in.
New Hampshire’s tallest peak, Mount Washington, is also one of the windiest places on the planet, and infamous for having the “world’s worst weather”. From the beautiful deck on the back of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, the serene view was inviting and seemed anything but treacherous. Since I’ve hiked it in good conditions in the past, I know it’s never anything to take for granted, but that the views are worth the effort. Sometimes I get so focused on the beauty here in the Seacoast that I forget how many treasures we have up north in the White Mountains.
The luxurious veranda at the rear of the Mount Washington Hotel is grand enough to take your breath away. Paired with its perfect setting amidst the White Mountains, the landscape is incredible. Here’s a glimpse.
