You want a story, I’ll tell you a story. I walked to this post office. Not once but TWICE. Yes you read that correctly. I’ve hiked up this old mountain two times and both times I ended up taking pictures of the post office. I guess I just can’t get enough walking up big mountains.
Why would someone do this. Well, once upon a time I used to work in an office building with a few good friends. One year in August of 2003 we decided to traverse the presidential range in the White Mountains. My friends Joe put together the itinerary and another co-worker of ours signed on for this epic journey of hiking 42 miles which included hiking over Mount Washington. So we walked, and all three of us hiked up Mount Washington. Thanks Joe for putting together a great trip and taking my picture.
The second time I visited Mount Washington was in 2007 while hiking the Appalachian Trail. Yes, I walked up this old mountain again for the second time in my life. I guess I didn’t get enough punishment the first time. I was with a group of AT hikers and we all posed for a group photo at the Mt Washington summit sign. It was windy but clear, so the views were nice. And that my folks is one for the record books. I’ve had repeated visits to a few post offices since starting this little web site, but I have to say my Mt. Washington visit is by far my most rewarding from a travel perspective.
Thanks for stopping by
