Ascent Trip Report

First ascent of Mt Washington with warm humid weather via the Lion Head Trail. Round trip including stop for lunch on the summit was about 8 hours. The summit was fogged in, but the descent gave some opportunities for great pics of the cleared summit above. This trip got me hooked on the White Mountains.
