It was a bright, bright sunshiny day

Today was an excellent day for outdoor activities, and we had plenty of them.

This morning, Mike and I hiked down to the Lakes of the Clouds, taking advantage of the fresh, crunchy ice with our crampons. The undercast slowly melted away, and we were left with a spectacularly blue view of the valley floor. The walk back up past Tuck’s and the summit cone was brisk, but we successfully made it back for the next hour’s observation. We hiked the last bit alongside a surprising number of other hikers who had decided to seize the day as well.

After a quick warm-up and an excellent meal complements of our week’s volunteers, Janet and Bob, I ventured up to the tower for several hours of intern shoveling duty. I really can’t complain, though, about the opportunity to get some exercise and watch the sunset over the White Mountain skyline. What a great day, and there will be many more to come.
