Photographer's Note

View from the summit of Mt. Washington. Native Americans called this mountain "Agiocochook," or "Home of the Great Spirit." Henry David Thoreau described the view as one in which the surrounding land mass didn't quite look terrestrial. He likened it to stanzas (terraced words on a page) or even waves: after all, the land mass was probably shaped by the water that advanced and receded with the Ice Age. On the other hand, something as unterrestrial (if not necessarily as unearthly) as a cloud might be taken for another slope, a slow drift over the land's arrested motion. In the lower part of the photo is part of the Presidential Range, with the summit of Mt. Monroe.
