Last shift we had some great weather: stunning sunrises and sunsets, a rainbow , sunlit views , mountain shadow , and blue clouds . This shift has been quite the opposite. We have been in and out of the fog (mostly in) for the past few days and don’t see any relief coming soon. The rotunda and gift shop have been relatively empty as of late, but our weather room has seen some tours, some Lakes croo, and Steve from the other shift and his son come through. To make the most of this dreary weather the staff up here has come together to watch movies, chit chat, and play some card and board games. Tonight an EduTrip, is visiting which should allow for plenty of interesting conversations and great food.

As many of you know, the 8th annual Seek the Peak was this past Saturday and I’m proud to say I sought and found it! I hiked up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail in some gorgeous weather. Partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures, and trickling streams and waterfalls on the headwall made for a wonderful yet exhausting experience. I was welcomed to smiling faces from the summit and valley staff, cookies, and a warm bed that I took advantage of for a few minutes. I’d be lying if I said I’d hike it again tomorrow, but I do hope to Seek the Peak again next year.

For now I will wait for excitement in the form of thunderstorms. This time of year is thrilling for me because I love summer storms, and though the weather has been foggy and for the most part boring, there is always that chance of a thunderstorm popping up and giving us a good show. Till next time!
