A beautiful sunset from MWO

Earlier this week, I was able to give my first tour to a group of our members from the Portland area. As we stood on the tower deck, enjoying the magnificent view, I pointed towards the general direction Portland would be. Moments before that the clouds had just cleared and I could see something glistening to the east, it was the Atlantic Ocean! At first I thought it was a job well done by a window washer on a sky scraper but as my eyes trailed the light along the horizon, I realized that it most certainly was the ocean. On a day like this one and the skies are mostly clear and the sun is positioned just right you will be in luck. We all stood in awe. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me, but the excitement our members had on their faces was priceless. I can safely say some of the greatest views you will ever see are on top of Mount Washington.
