Comments from my first 4 days…

While up here for my first 4 days, I’ve gotten to experience the life of living atop Mt. Washington. What it feels like to be outside in 76mph winds, panoramic views of spectacular sunsets, and the opportunity to get to know the crew I will not be working with, as I will be on the opposite shift come Wednesday.

They have all been very welcoming. At dinner we all gather together,while we talk about about our day, telling stories, getting to know each other or having a good laugh and it just makes you feel very comfortable with them. Not to mention the volunteers make incredible meals.

All in all, so far I am enjoying all of the excellent cooking by the volunteers and the laughter with the entire crew. As much work as we have to do up here 6,288ft in the sky, there is always time to laugh and play!
