Back to Work

Halfway to the summit of Mount Chocorua!

It sure was a great off-week! On Monday, my friends Arielle, Andrew, Mercedes, and I were able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and hike Mount Chocorua. We had a great time and enjoyed the clear 360 degree views from the summit. Mount Washington stood tall to the north, and we could distantly see the familiar puffs of smoke from the Cog Railway as it chugged along, bringing eager visitors to the 6,288 foot summit.

Now we are back to work for another shift week, and somehow, next week will already be September. I must say I am looking forward to the change in seasons, as this will be my first fall (and winter!) on the summit. In addition to the vibrant autumn colors, I’m looking forward to experiencing what winter has to offer atop Mount Washington.
