It’s Good to be Back!

After taking a brief vacation, I am back to work on the summit of Mount Washington.  While my vacation was very enjoyable, part of me did miss being up on the summit.  The things that I miss the most during my time away were the sunrises and sunsets.  While most people would agree that a sunrise or set anywhere is usually a beautiful site, ones from the top of a mountain (particularly on Mount Washington) are just on a whole other scale of beauty. 
I’m lucky enough to see so many amazing sunrises/sets since when I’m working I live here on the summit.  Otherwise access to the summit vistas during sunrises and sunsets are limited to just hikers and special events. One of these special events is our “Sunset Soiree”, which is coming up on September 12th. While tickets are selling fast for the Sunset Soiree, there is still some left.  So be sure to get yours before you miss your chance to see a truly one of a kind sunset from the summit of Mount Washington. There will be a sunset champagne toast, followed by some delicious food to close out what should be a great evening.
