Another hiker made really bad decisions and NH F&G and SAR were not happy. They had to use the Cog Railway for the rescue mission. -9 F ambient temps, 90 mph winds, and -52 F windchills do not make for safe hiking.

Pretty cool how they used the cog. Thanks for sharing. Treacherous and very dangerous conditions out there. Props to SAR.
