I had the pleasure of visiting what was, until 1996, the windiest place on earth. It was Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Mount Washington held that blustery distinction until readings were taken from the backside of Ken Appleby's jeans. Though still sub-sonic, some blasts, known as toots in scientific terms, were clocked at 462 mph. That's exactly double those recorded on Mount Washington!
At 6288 feet, Mount Washington is the third highest state peak in the eastern United States. It is located in the White Mountains National Park, and is part of the Presidential Range of mountains. The Presidential Range is home to peaks with such names as Washington, Madison, Adams and Eisenhower. There is no Mount Clinton, though consideration has been given by many.
