Hustle and Bustle

The Sherman Adams building atop the summit is bustling with activity!

With the opening of the new Extreme Mount Washington Museum just around the corner, we continue to prepare for a busy summer. The Mount Washington Auto Road crew continues to work on clearing the road to the summit (you can check their website for information on their progress and scheduled opening date). New Hampshire State Park has released their operating schedule online, so be sure to head here to learn when their facilities will be open. Lastly, the Cog Railway’s first trips of the season are scheduled for this weekend with the rest of their 2014 operating schedule located on their website.

Winter brings incredibly high winds, cold temperatures, and intricate rime ice formations. These extremes are an experience that meteorologists and weather enthusiasts dream about. While I love the impressive winter weather, I must say I’m equally fond of the summer season too. I particularly enjoy sharing the Observatory’s mission with hikers, guests, and visitors alike. When our visitors come through the weather room for a tour or climb up to the top of the tower for a priceless view, their excitement is unrestrained. If you haven’t planned your family summer vacation yet, consider visiting the Observatory this year. You won’t regret it!
