“The Mount Washington Observatory website has a nice story on the 9/11 memorial hike I organized (I am in the photo with glasses, looking up and holding the flag pole - the pic expands if you click on it)
After today the story and pic will be available if you go to the September archives and scroll to the 11th:
Background: Yesterday 18 of us set out for the top of Mount Washington in the name of the Burn Survivors of New England and the Boston Hiking Group. My wife took the auto road and met us at the top with equipment. One burn survivor and one BHG hiker turned around before the summit. Winds were intense and we set up while the top of the mountain was in a fog, so it took some work to get the flag up with guy lines. We set up a poster with portraits of the 343 fallen fire fighters in visitors center as groups of people milled by coming off the auto road and the cog railway (it was too windy to secure it outside).
The event was part of a 9/11 memorial hike I have been doing since 2002, called flags on the 48 (we raise the flag on the summits of the 48 major peaks of New Hampshire from noon to 2PM).”
“Yikes - we are already on the archive page with a new story for today - the working link is now:
