First Day on the Summit

Clouds on the summit

What a beautiful view from atop Mount Washington this morning. My name is Emanuel Janisch and I am one of the new summer interns here on the mountain. This is the second day here in the observatory and it has already been full of new and interesting things. I feel extremely honored to be a part of this unique experience and team and look forward to learning all that the Observatory has to offer.

Having traveled a lot, meeting new people and experiencing new things is always enjoyable. Having been on the mountain for less than 12 hours I already got involved in part of the everyday activates. I recorded my first travel weather radio cast, giving the weather for the following 36 hours. Not the best but something I will have plenty of time to improve on. This being my first full day I have already been graced with winds of upwards of 66 MPH, beautiful views and lots of fog. The next few days are going to be interesting learning what is required and needed of the interns as well as hopefully being able to get out and take a few hikes around the summit to get a perspective of what it is like from the outside, seeing that this is my very first time in the White Mountains and on Mount Washington.
