Yes Virginia, There is a Mountain on the East Coast


When I was in high school I used to walk to school daily and pass a car that had a bumper sticker reading “This car climbed Mt. Washington”.  I always thought it was a joke, as everyone knows that there are no mountains on the East Coast, right?

Well, it turns out I was totally wrong.  On Sunday, my buddy Tom and I decided to do a ski tour of Tuckerman’s Ravine at Mount Washington.  When we got to the base of the ravine (after a three thousand foot climb), we realized: this is a legit mountain.  Check out the photos: if I didn’t tell you that was New Hampshire you could mistake it for the Rockies.

Anyways, it was a blast.  We got some great fresh tracks in and got tanned too.  I also couldn’t believe how many people were dropping over the ice ridges in the photo above; most fell and rolled all the way to the bottom-where they got a clap and a cheer from the 300 (!) or so people in the ravine.

Can’t wait to do it again next year.
