CNN PRODUCER NOTE aparulis and her father decided to scale Mt. Washington in New Hampshire last week even though the peak has been dubbed 'Home of the World's Worst Weather' because of its reputation for extreme winter weather. The pair snow shoed through deep powder – about 3 feet of snow -- until they reached 5,000 feet, where high winds and low visibility sent them back home. 'Many people think we are crazy but it's pretty amazing to be high up on a mountain and feel the full force of Mother Nature. Everything is white and iced over; it is like being in another world,' she said. aparulis snapped this photo as she headed down the mountain and out of the clouds as smaller summits came into view. It was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for February 28, 2013.
