June Snow Covers Mt. Washington, NH

May be an image of nature, sky and textIt was a surprisingly cold weekend in New Hampshire, as I actually had to wear my winter jacket outside on Saturday morning. This was especially true on Mt. Washington, where there was a dusting of snow that fell Saturday night. Temperatures dropped into the thirties during the day and the twenties in the evening and winds of over 80 miles per hour at times made it feel much colder. Sadly, one hiker passed away after being rescued Saturday night on the Gulfside Trail, which leads up to the summit of Mt. Washington. Snow remained at the peak as of Monday morning, but rising temperatures will likely make it melt soon.
