Waiting in Line on Mount Washington

The pile of rocks marks the highest point on Mount Washington in New Hampshire White Mountains. It is a place similar to Pike's Peak in Colorado with a lunch room, museum, weather station and a cog railway to the top. I had to keep reminding myself that Mount Washington was only 6,288 feet high, which is only slightly higher than where we live in Provo, Utah at about the 5,000 foot level along the Wasatch Mountains. For comparison, Pike's Peak is 14,115 feet high and when on top, you really feel the altitude. By the way, all those people are standing in line to have their picture taken on top of the mountain.
