Good Morning :-)

It is with a heavy heart, I leave the mountain. I have spent the past week as a volunteer in the observatory living space. I have been blessed by the beauty of the mountains and the people I have met. A special thanks to my extraordinary partner Karin, who shared her knowledge in the kitchen and her generous spirit. The staff and interns made us feel welcomed and appreciated. The kitchen is stocked with wonderful food possibilities and a willing group, eager to eat. I will miss the routine of the day, the opportunity to explore the mountain and our friend, Nin the kitty. A special thanks to the volunteer coodinators for giving me this opportunity to extend my love for the White Mountains in such a meaningful way.
