Finally after all the hoopla, debate day is finally here. I have been interested in this debate for quite a while.
** Election notice……..we have driven through 4 states and have seen only a handful of yard signs for the presidential election. I think we have seen more Gary Johnson (Libertarian) than Trump or Clinton signs.
Our debate today is what flavor of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream to try. Each one has it’s merits.
The winner – STEPHEN COLBERT’S AMERICONE DREAM! (It also happened to be the free sample passed out at he factory today.
We also paid our respects to the past flavors at the flavor graveyard.
In a blink of an eye we were in New Hampshire! We headed for the White Mountains, dropped off Seymour with the good folks at KOA in Littleton and headed out to Mt. Washington.
At 6,288 ft above sea level, Mt. Washington is not the highest mountain we have been on this year however it does have the wickedest weather! It is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States. Today was a beautiful day to climb the mountain as only about 60 days a year have good visibility and clear skies at the top, and this was one of them. We took the 140 year old Cog Railway ( a straight up the mountain trip) to the summit which has the worst weather in America!
Mount Washington once held the world record and still holds the Northern Hemisphere and Western Hemisphere record for directly measured surface wind speed, at 231 mph (372 km/h), recorded on the afternoon of April 12, 1934.
Beautiful view on a beautiful day.
