The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

Mount Washington

Mount Washington.

In one of my visits to the United States I passed some days amongst the White Mountains, and mude an ascent to the summit of Mount Washington by a railway which goes straight up by a sharp angle from the base to the summit a height of 6000 feet. On the page 85 top there is an observatory, a printing office, and a good hotel, where we met with a comfortable reception, and enjoyed the warmth of a good stove, having changed the temperature from that of summer below to early winter on the summit. A very fine view of all the neighbouring country is obtained at sunrise from that elevation, a good deal like that of the view obtained from the "Brocken," or highest point of the Hartz Mountains in Germany.
