My Final Week on the Summit

2014-10-14 20:11:00.000 – Andrew Tucker, Summit Museum Attendant


Well I have come to the final day of my adventure atop Mount Washington for the season. I never expected to live on a mountain, let alone be with such an amazing group of people. From experiencing wind speeds up to almost 100mph, to being able to capture the amazing view of the Northern Lights, I must say that this has been one of the best times of my life. I feel like I have become part of a family during my time at the Observatory and I was lucky enough to meet several volunteers that donated their time to assist us. I enjoyed being able to attend events that the Observatory put on like the Ribbon Cutting event for Extreme Mount Washington. Everyone who came through had a blast as they got to see just how extreme the winter is up here. It really puts into perspective exactly what the Observers have to go through each and every day. Of course, it was great getting to spend time with the marvelous Marty. I’m going to miss this mountain.
