Photographer's Note

This is a view of Mount Monroe, 1641m (5,385 feet), from Mount Washington, 1917m (6,288 feet), in the White Mountains, New Hampshire.

It was very cold that day and very windy as usual! It was below -30 Celcius (-22 Fahrenheit) with winds over 100 km/h (60 m/h).

Mount Monroe, the first peak southwest of Mount Washington, was named in honor of President James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States. Monroe, which would be a significant peak anywhere else in the Northeast, is dwarfed by its neighbor Washington. The summit of Monroe rises less than 400 feet above the small plain known as Bigelow Lawn. We can see an emergency refuge.
