Photo: Mount Washington's Summit
«  9 of 9

"The weather on New Hampshire's Mount Washington is notoriously unpredictable. This photo was taken on the 6,288-foot (1,916-meter) summit on a late spring climb, when the wind was blowing more than 40 miles per hour (64 kilometers per hour), with my friend Charlie Raynes."
Bryan Kinkade
Travel Manager
Do-It-Yourself:  "We climbed with EMS Climbing School [], one of many great guide services in North Conway that will give you a great intro to mountaineering. Be sure to pack for any sort of weather! I left the parking lot in shorts and, by the end, was wearing everything I brought along."
