It takes me around two and a half hours to drive here from Boston, Massachusetts. We do have a small reservation with some wooded hills just outside Boston that I visit often to hike.
The White Mountains are really small compared to the mountains you see in Austria or even the mountains we see in the western parts of the United States. For the most part the White Mountains wooded but there are a handful of peaks above tree line in an "alpine zone" and though the mountains are relatively small, weather conditions can still be extreme. There is a weather observatory at the summit of Mt. Washington that recorded the highest wind speed on earth at 231 mph. (372 km/h) Also, Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the northeast United States at 6,288 feet. (1,917 m)
I took this photo of Mt. Washington the same day from about 1000 ft (305 m) above sea level.
Are those the Putman scales? If so, wait until you start breaking them in...awesome scales!! Love mine.
I used mine right away today! Cut a few weeds from some plants and cut away some old caulk to redo around our slider door. I'm digging it! Wish I could make a scale swap like yours though
You know me...had to give it a lil touch of Turbo.
