The Rockpile never fails to amaze, even after eight years of volunteering! Weather wise, if you follow these comments, you know what it has been like up here, warm and sunny, but not nearly as warm as in the Valley. Last week when we headed up here, we were desperate to escape the heat, and now we have to head home to it. The temperature has hovered between fifty and high sixties day and night, and the winds have not been high. We have cooked for the crew, (German, Tex-Mex, Colonial, New England Lobster….), cleaned, and we have hiked. The flowers are still blooming in the Alpine Garden, the view into Great Gulf from Mt. Clay is still awesome, Lakes of the Clouds is still worth sitting beside and contemplating, Ball Crag still makes a nice short late afternoon hike. We’ve worked hard, but we’ve played hard too (including Bananagrams until midnight last night!) and now we’re ready to turn over the reigns to the next volunteers. We’re happy to be members of the Mount Washington Observatory and be able to support work up here with our donations and our time and energy.
You should try it!
