Miss New Hampshire

Back on the summit again and off to a great start to the week. Yesterday I had a very special visitor that was here to film a promotional video that will be featured on the Miss USA YouTube channel in the coming months. Miss New Hampshire, Meagan Lyman was here with an unusual request outside the basic description of what I do here on the summit. Luckily it was something that I have done in the past and could pull off. What is it you might ask? Well I can’t say just yet but you will be sure to know when it is posted on YouTube!
