Mount Washington is the highest mountain in the Northeastern United States and showcases some of the most severe weather in the world.  Winds at the top of the mountain have reached 231 miles per hour and temperatures with windchill have fallen to -107 F.

During the summer and fall, when the weather is more hospitable, steam trains take tourists to the summit of the mountain.

[Pointers indicate the route.  Note the smoke from a locomotive high on the mountain.]
