Have you ever driven up Mt Washington? It's a beautiful drive--6288 feet up. If you've never done it, it's not too scary at all! Driving up usually takes about 30 minutes. BUT, if you're in a #199SubaruWRX STI with a specially fitted 600hp engine it's a lot shorter trip.
Winds were gusting to 102 MPH and the wind chill was -40°F, but that didn't stop two Mt. Washington Observatory staff members from heading out on the observation deck this week to see what it was like.
You've probably seen the bumper stickers proudly proclaiming "This car climbed Mt. Washington." When you drive up a 7.6 mile, steep, narrow mountain road that climbs over 6000 feet with no guard rails, you can't help but feel like you've accomplished something.
