Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!


We took the Cog Rail to Mt. Washington. It was cold on top of the mountain but it was clear and you could see far into the distance. It was 39 degrees F with a wind chill of 31 degrees F and 4 degrees C. Last year when we took the van to the top the visibility was between 50 and 100 yards and the winds were so strong I could barely walk. Click here to read that posting and view more pictures and videos from our past two visits. You can see from the above photo that we have extra jackets with us because we know it will be cold. A hat and gloves are also advisable. Makes for such a nice picture doesn’t it!! Many people do not understand how cold it will be on top of the mountain. Some come dressed in shorts, sandals, and no jacket – we see them shivering on the top. One poor little kid had on shorts and a jacket but you could see he was cold! Keep in mind it can be 80 degrees F but on top of that mountain it can drop by 50 or more degrees. Plus you need to know the wind chill and the wind speed. We live in a cold climate area of the country so we are accustomed to bitter cold temps and winds. Information is posted at the base of the mountain regarding the temperature so be sure to check it out. Plus you can go to their online website to find out the mountain conditions. Below is the temperature that was posted on top of the mountain.

I must admit I love being on top of Mt. Washington. The views are amazing and it is quite the experience. Plus it is like a different world – hikers literally from around the world all at the top of the mountain. Just amazing!!

      It is gorgeous – and very cold!! I forgot to bring my gloves and didn’t feel like spending the money to purchase another pair. But gloves are a good idea! Plus a hat!

    We visited Mt. Washington on Oct. 10 and had wonderful weather and could enjoy the views for miles and miles. I have been following the Observatory website since coming home and am amazed at the drastic weather change! We are from Ohio and this was our first time in New England.

      It is so amazing to be on top of Mt. Washington. The views are just amazing! We have been there 3 times. Last year the visibility was only a few feet and the winds were brutal! Overall, Crawford Notch is just beautiful and my favorite area of NH.
