MWO Staff all dressed up

Yesterday was Seek the Peak with nearly 500 hikers making the trek to the Summit and taking the opportunity to tour the Observatory. I have to say one of my favorite parts of the job up here is getting the chance to interact with visitors that come to the Summit and explaining to them a little about what we do up here. There are a surprising number of visitors who don’t realize the Mount Washington Observatory is a private non-profit organization that’s member supported and not part of the Nation Weather Service.

Yesterday evening we went down to the base of the Auto Road for the After Party for all of the hikers that participated in Seek the Peak.

Almost as diverse as the weather here at the Summit is how people get to see the top of the mountain – We’ve all become used to seeing the Cog come steaming up first thing in the morning and of course a number of hikers, cars and motorcycles – Today brought a number of ATVs throughout the day and a couple of gliders circling the summit mid afternoon – It won’t be long before the Snow Tractor is the preferred method of getting to the summit.
