This past weekend we drove up to the 4000 foot level of NH's Mount Washington. The top of the mountain was closed due to 18 degree weather and 50 mile per hour winds. The wind chill factor was minus 5. This is just below the tree line although the trees at this height are very short. The dilapidation is seasonal as the tree will recover in the spring. The tree was about 2 feet tall.

Also in the NH White Mountains. There are many aging one and two room cabins that once were rented to tourists. Now they only hold fond memories of sitting in front of the fire - nice and cozy while the winds blew down from the mountain.

Ooh! I wish you hadn't shown that icy tree. I'm not ready for that.

As for the cabin, you say they aren't rented out any more. Are they still occupied. It looks like a little bit of work would fix it up.

I noted the windswept angles of the tree branches, that a tad too cold for me.

In the second shot, that house suffers a bad case of delirium tremens. Look at the angle of the chimney, I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

Aloha for sharing.

Wow! Are you sure those trees weren't outside our work yesterday. No wonder I was freezing all day.

Nice image. I think I'll stay away from there. And, that house/cabin. It sure looks like a small breeze would blow it over.
