As my final week on the summit comes to a close I can’t help but think how great the whole experience was. I sit here reflecting on the experiences and knowledge that the summit observatory has provided me and I realize they are priceless. I will be able to carry them with me wherever I go and build off of them. A big part of what made my time up here so valuable was the observers I was able to work with. They all have a great sense of humor made living on the summit fun and entertaining. I can’t thank only the observers I have to say thanks to the volunteers that were also up here this shift. Not only was their food fantastic, but they were great people to be around. To experience some of the worst weather conditions in the world just outside of my doorstep on a regular basis is something that never got old. I hope that if there is anyone out there interested in supporting the Mount Washington Observatory in any way, big or small, be it through an internship, donation, volunteering time or simply visiting the summit- you should know that it is absolutely worth your effort in supporting this New Hampshire institution.
