The temperature may have been subzero but that didn’t stop New Hampshire man Josh Darnell dropping down on one knee in the snow and proposing to his girlfriend on a mountain.
Josh Darnell, 31, of Londonderry, New Hampshire, popped the question after climbing to a scenic spot Thursday on Tuckerman’s Ravine, on the southeastern side of Mount Washington.
And Rachel Raske, 27, of Lowell, Massachusetts, said yes.

That same day it hit minus 34F on the mountain’s summit, which is more than 6,200 feet high.
Darnell’s father, Doug, tagged along to record the event with his camera. He said the wind was blowing so hard that it knocked him on his back when he got out of the car.
Raske was stunned by the proposal.
‘After about 10 minutes of her crying, I said “you’d better stop crying or your eyes are going to freeze up,”‘ Doug Darnell recalled on Saturday.

The Darnells had hiked Tuckerman’s Ravine previously and the younger Darnell decided he was going to propose to his girlfriend next to a waterfall.
He secretly sought permission from Raske’s father for his daughter’s hand in marriage prior to making the trek.
‘She had no clue,’ said Raske’s father, Charlie. ‘We all knew she was getting engaged – everyone except for her.’
