The Summit of Mount Washington
When you are walking or climbing to the top of a high mountain, you are usually watching your feet. As you climb it is very common that the summit can only be seen once you are actually on top or very close. On many mountains, the actual highest point is not overly obvious. I can think of several mountains where you have to wander around a bit and find the highest pile of rocks before you feel like you have actually reached the top. Mount Washington is no exception, but here, at least, there was a sign pointing out the top. In all fairness, I should point out that we drove our car to within a few dozen yards of the top of the mountain in this case.
