A Rainy Weekend

2013-06-07 16:25:39.000 – Kaitlyn O`Brien,  Summit Intern


As the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea steadily move up the Eastern seaboard, we will see plenty of moisture over the next couple of days. But that won’t dampen our spirits up here on the summit!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to visit with one of my college professors who was traveling in the area and decided hike up Mount Washington before the rain moved in. As a new intern, what better way to practice giving tours of the Observatory than by giving one to my college Dynamics professor? Needless to say, it was a great day and he enjoyed his visit. If you’re interested in visiting the Observatory for a tour, sign up to be a member today. We hope to see you up here some day!
