The White Mountains in New Hampshire are the tallest in the Northeast (not the East Coast - Mt. Mitchell in the BLACK Mountains in North Carolina is the highest peak east of the Mississippi).  But the Presidential Range in the White Mountains has something the many higher mountains in North Carolina don´t have -- alpine peaks.   And the White Mountains are very close to the sea, making them prone to all kinds of intense, and very changeable, weather.  Hence the record-breaking gusts on top of Mt. Washington.

Here's me testing out my crampons and ice axe for the very first time. What a novice! (This was decades ago, of course.)
