February 2000 Photo Gallery

First Light
A cool morning before sunrise on the summit February 3, 2000. The winds were averaging 63 MPH with a temperature of -7°F and a wind chill of -66°F.

A sunrise illuminates the rime encrusted buildings on the summit. Members of the Observatory are eligible to spend an overnight on the summit through the EduTrips Program.

The summit enjoys a brilliant sun above an undercast while the valleys below are under gray skies. February 19, 2000.

Early in the morning February 3, 2000. Outreach Coordinator Bryan Yeaton busily reloading film for another shot while the first sun's rays light the summit.

Rime ice covering the stairs leading to the lower parking lot used in the summertime for auto road travelers. Wildcat Ski Area is visible in the background.

Stage and Trestle
The Stage Office building and the end of the Cog Railway trestle. These two structures were in existence when the Observatory was founded in 1932.

Bombardier operator Chris Uggerholt clears away 6 to 10 foot drifts to keep the only route available for vehicular traffic passable to the summit while bringing observers up for a shift change.

Undercast 2
The clouds look like the waves of an ocean. Notice the similar shapes of the wind-drifted snow in the foreground. This undercast occured after the region received almost 8 inches of new snow from a large storm system that moved in from the midwest. February 19, 2000.
