Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s been a busy weekend here on the ‘rock pile’ with an EMS climbing trip with two guides and nine guests making their way up early yesterday afternoon and staying over for the night. They got up early for a beautiful sunrise over a nearly continuous layer of under cast then made their way down to the living quarters for a big home cooked breakfast before touring the Observatory then heading back down the mountain.
Today we have two Edu-Trip leaders and nine guests with us for New England Nature Photography: Capturing Images in Dramatic Light and Atmosphere. They’ve had a chance to hike and photograph around the Summit cone and photograph a nice sunset. Looking at tomorrow’s forecast it promises to provide them with a nice sunrise before they head down midafternoon.
As I did my weather observations out on the deck today I saw a number of hiking groups making their way to the Summit. If you’re experienced and fully prepared for winter hiking tomorrow also looks like a great day for a hike. Today was warm as I worked outside repairing some equipment however not a record breaker – Tomorrow on the other hand may be a very different story but you’re going to have to wait for our Meteorologist and Weather Observer Ryan Knapp’s comment tomorrow to get the details.
In keeping with tradition everyone on the Summit is Irish today and our volunteers for the week Betsy and Sue are cooking up a Boiled Dinner as I write this.
