High Above the Summit [ID:49]

High Above the Summit  [ info ]
From the airplane's lofty perspective, Brad looked down on the "City among the Clouds" – though cloud-free on this spectacular day. The lines of the Cog Railway and Carriage Road can be seen, leading to the tiny colony of structures – the Summit House, Tiptop House, and the Stage Office/Observatory. Beyond the summit, the north-facing crags of Boott Spur are topped by the broad sweep of that secondary summit's above-treeline plateau.
The White Mountains Collection was donated to the Mount Washington Observatory by Brad Washburn
