Did You Know: There is a Coke Machine at the top of Mt. Washington

Well neither did we until Newport’s own David McCrillis presented pictures from his recent “Presidential Traverse”.  David’s trek was made even more difficult as he did it overnight and in the dark. 

It’s a well known challenge for avid hikers from all over.  So popular it even has its own page on Wikipedia which gives great details about the hike!
