In all my years growing up I always dreamed of staying on Mt Washington, at least for a night. Mt. Washington was always in my thoughts. In recent years it had become a BUCKET LIST item. Now here I am the last night of my weeks stay on the mountain. I have met so many wonderful people who work here and who visit. To wake here in the morning is beyond words and to go to bed at night listening to the wind blowing outside my bedroom window is just to wonderful.

Marty the cat has been my pal for the week and I loved it. Cooking for the crew has been great and everyone has been just so wonderful.

I really urge all of you out there who have had the same dream I had to DO IT!
