Lakes Work

Crew upon return

Yesterday we were finally able to show Anna and Tanya the rarely seen sunny and friendly side of Mount Washington. Jeff, Mike, Steve the volunteer, Anna, Tanya and I went for a hike down to the Lakes of the Clouds hut. The true purpose of our hike was to shut off some of our remote sensing equipment for the winter season that we have at the hut. Since it is closed and locked up for the season, I had to stand guard at the door while Jeff, Mike and Steve took care of the work inside.

We took a longer route back up, showing Anna and Tanya Tuck’s and views of the Southern Presidentials. By the time we returned to the summit the temperature had increased from 13 F when we left to a balmy 20 F, and the winds had died completely.

We made it back up just in time for sunset, which as usual, never gets old. Nothing is better after a nice hike than a five course home cooked meal. Ernie, our Swiss chef extraordinaire had cooked up some Goulash, Blueberry pie and Raspberry Truffles. Man is life tough!
