Hey Guys - (and by that I mean guys and gals) Wondering if any of you have been to the forums at the Mount Washington Observatory website? Find it at www.mountwashington.org (http://www.mountwashington.org). Find forums at the top towards the right. It is a great forum. The categories are fewer than here and some include; Photograhy - Hikes in the Whites - etc. Many people post their trip reports as they hike the beautiful White Mountains in New Hampshire. I have learned so much about cold weather hiking - layering, etc. I no longer fear the cold -- it's all good if you are prepared. Anyway -- let me know what you think! I hope you all have a chance to check out this forum. Also there are pretty cool webcams of Washiongton and lots of good information about the observatory and the weather -- etc., etc. I like it so much, I want you all to like it too!

Sheri5775-"Yes -- very cool! But have you lurked in the forums?! Check 'em out! Good stuff!"I also believe it's 'good stuff', I worked on the summit for 4 winters and just spent a couple of days there (February 12 13) on one of their photography edu-trips as assistant instructor.
