Incredible Experience Volunteering on the Summit

2013-07-10 17:15:12.000 – Phyllis Simon,  Summit Volunteer


What an interesting week I’ve had as a volunteer at the Observatory! In exchange for cooking dinner for the summit staff and keeping the common areas tidy, I got to spend an entire week living up here on the summit. Of course, the weather could have cooperated a bit more as we were socked in by clouds and fog on most days. I did, however, get to see a couple of amazing sunsets (one from Lakes of the Clouds) and one sunrise peeking out from behind the passing clouds. Last night, the summit was mostly clear, the wind had died completely and there were clouds in the valleys with the peaks jutting up out of them. Turnabout is fair play, right? It was a beautiful night on the summit of Mt. Washington. Thank you MWOBS for this unique experience.
