Northern Presidentials on a sunny day.

My second week here at the observatory has been great. The weather has been beautiful with sunshine, some winds, and visibility lasting for miles. Looking out the window on Sunday was certainly comforting. I was able to see all the way into the Adirondacks. Being from New York, the opportunity to see my home state from such a unique vantage point, on top of a mountain 130 miles away, was awesome.

This weekend, Labor Day crowds flooded the summit with many entering the museum and gift shop. We have been also giving a number of tours to groups interested in what we do here at the Observatory. It was great to meet and interact with visitors from all over.

Everyday is different here on the top of Mount Washington from the weather to the visitors. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next!
