Alton Weagle Day

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham NH 03581


Alton Weagle had a passion for Mt. Washington. To show his passion, he climbed the Mt. Washington Auto Road in a number of unique ways: by car, on foot, walking backwards, blindfolded and finally pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar…just to name a few. This day honors his spirit and the spirit of all the camels, Segways and even the odd pogo sticks that have been the first up the mountain - think you’re up to it?  

 

We invite you to dream up a “first ascent” of some kind and run the idea by us – you just may get invited to celebrate with us!
