Mt. Washinton high in the back, Mt. Willey on the left and Mts. Lowell, Anderson, and Nancy in right foreground, looking east from Mt. Carrigain
The following pictures and paragraphs comprise a brief history of the creation of the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) to serve as a foundation for some of the articles to come. It’s a bit awkward to build a blog in which time, meaning the chronological order, goes up the page instead of down; where the last page (the bottom of the scroll) is the beginning, or oldest, and the first page is the end. It can be better managed by numbering the articles and pictures and having a table of contents which I will do soon. The pictures displayed with this narrative on the history are (almost) a 360 degree panorama of the WMNF from close to its center point on the summit of Mt. Carrigain (4700 feet).
