Brief Moments of Clarity

Being socked in the fog for an entire shift gets old quickly. Luckily, conditions began to clear up yesterday and that made for the perfect opportunity to take an evening hike down to Lakes of the Clouds. Once we were all packed up, Alex, Rebecca, our two volunteers (Jenny and Phyllis), and I started down the Crawford Path. Visibility was the best we’ve seen all week and it was obvious everyone was enjoying the clarity! Once we arrived at the hut, all focus turned to the horizon to catch the sunset; a scene that I’ve found never gets old. Beautiful hues of pink and orange shocked the sky with color above the ashen silhouettes of distant mountains, offering a taste of nature’s intuitive knack for perfect contrast. Once we all had our fill of the view, we began the trek back up to the summit just in time to catch Bretton Woods’ fireworks display.
