Family Time

It’s been a very busy day on the summit! In between radio calls, giving tours, connecting with the Weather Discovery Center for Live from the Rockpile segments, taking hourly observations, performing daily data quality checks, and hosting our Vasque syndicate thru-hiker, I still found time to visit with family today when they came up on the Mount Washington Cog Railway. Everyone enjoyed their time on the summit, and it was so great to take a break from the normal daily routine and visit with them!

If you are looking to vacation to the summit of Mount Washington, there are a few different ways to get here. You can hike, take the cog railway, or drive yourself via the Mount Washington Auto Road. While you’re up here, don’t forget to check out the Extreme Mount Washington museum, which features all new interactive exhibits for everyone in the family. We’ll see you up here!
