Just how far off was the forecast for today, or at least my interpretation of it? Here are the summit conditions on Mt. Washington at about 3:30 this afternoon. Sorry to have missed being above treeline. Then again, had we started out we would have been on the trail somewhere between 7:00 and 8:00 am and would have made the summit by 11:00 at the latest when, according to the blue chart on the right, the winds would have been higher than I would like, especially for little Atticus. It seems the winds really died down somewhere just after 1:00 pm. We'll get up early tomorrow morning and check out the forecast again. If the updated higher summits forecast gets rid of the "w/snow showers" aspect we'll do our best to climb Washington tomorrow.
