A fine end to the day!

Sunset on 08-23-14

Some of the most peaceful moments I have had up here on the summit are spent watching sunset from the rocks just outside. It can be very relaxing after a long day of work to feel like you have the whole mountain to yourself, and sometimes the true king of the mountain, Marty, joins us and steps outside to gaze upon his domain. We had a very nice sunset today on the summit, with all of the summit staff (including Marty) able to take in the view shortly after dinner.

If you’d like the opportunity to take in a sunset from the top of New England, our annual fall fundraiser Sunset Soiree is only two weeks away on September 6th. The event features a wine tasting at the base of the Auto Road, a chauffeured drive to the summit, champagne toast at sunset on the observation deck, a sumptuous dinner at the Thompson House Eatery in Jackson, and finishes up with dessert and a silent auction featuring beautiful photography and getaways. All proceeds benefit the Mount Washington Observatory, helping to support our work in weather observation, research, and education atop the summit. Hope to see you there!
