Chocolate, Snow, and King Marty

2015-04-06 17:05:57.000 – Mike Carmon, Interim Director of Summit Operations


Easter has come and gone on the summit, and most of the staff up here won’t be able to look at chocolate for quite a while. I may have gone a little overboard with the amount of candy I brought up for the holiday. But I can safely say it was enjoyed by all yesterday! Between the candy, snacks, appetizers, the awesome meal cooked by our volunteers, and the inevitable dessert, it was surely a holiday fit for a king! 

King Marty, on the other hand, hasn’t seemed to have had his fill at all. I caught him snooping through our leftovers this afternoon. Who knew his sweet tooth was so unrelenting?


With the amount of snow we’ve seen up here since Saturday (we’re up to 12.6 inches, and still counting!), it felt like we should be celebrating Christmas instead of Easter. But as always, the weather always has its own plans, and runs on its own schedule. One of my favorite sayings is “the mountain does what it wants.” This week has certainly been no exception!

So, until the skies clear and the summit begins to thaw, we’ll rely on our chocolates to boost our mood in lieu of the sunlight we crave.
