I had the opportunity to ride the SnowCoach yesterday, and words can barely describe how amazing it was. The mix of sun and clouds made for some pretty unique scenery. Our driver, Kate, gave us an amazing tour describing the sights along the route. There were some guests here from China enjoying the trip as well. As we ascended, the winding road we saw numerous Snowshoe Hare tracks. It’s pretty incredible how they have adapted to life in winter. They have large back feet that act as snowshoes keeping them from sinking down into the deep snow. They eat from the bottom of bushes where the snow isn’t as deep. For most of the trip we were the only ones on the road making it even more peaceful than it already was. At the 4,200’ mark, where we turn around, there was no wind at all to speak of. This is very rare for Mt. Washington especially in the winter where the winds average around 44 mph. The views looking out to the Northern Presidentials are breathtaking. I’ve been up the road about quite a few times and in the winter the mountains seem much more colossal.
