DEATHS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL RANGE
THIS LIST OF THOSE WHO HAVE
PERISHED ON OR NEAR THE
NORTHEASTS HIGHEST PEAK IS
MEANT NOT AS A MORBID CURIOSITY
BUT AS A POINTED REMINDER
THIS CAN BE A DANGEROUS PLACE
NOBODY ON THIS LIST PLANNED TO DIE HERE
BUT SOME DID IGNORANT OR STUPID
THINGS THAT LED TO FATAL ACCIDENTS.
I begin this move with this description because most people take the area for granted and do not always consider the dangerous nature of Mt Washington. 31 people have lost their lives here, one man blown off the mtn and never found again. Be careful and be smart. Enjoy the ride. - Reel Theory
