Brian hard at work!

Things on the summit have begun to pick up once again! There has been a steady flow of tours and the museum has been busy. We had a stream of unexpected visitors today, which always makes for an interesting break from the daily routine. Two longtime volunteers, Al and Marion, even brought us a delicious cheese cake!

We have managed to stay in the clear for most of today. Early this morning I took a short walk. For once, the fog was elsewhere, blanketing the valley floor. The surrounding lower peaks poked up through the fog, creating a beautiful sight.

Everyone seems to be busy with certain projects. Perhaps the most obvious is Brian’s installation of the new Polycom, used for educational outreach purposes. For the past 36 hours, Brian’s workspace has consisted of a 3 foot wide and 5 inch deep pile of wires! As the rest of us pay special attention and tiptoe around each and every wire, Brian takes on a different approach…
