Our Week on the Summit

2013-07-02 14:00:47.000 – Mike and Dan,  Summit Volunteers

A Fun Crew.

It’s been a fun a rewarding week here on the summit. It’s something that we have always wanted to do. The crew has been great and it was a real pleasure working with them. They are very appreciative of everything we do, especially dinners, cookies and brownies!

The first couple of days were a learning process of getting used to the routine and creating dinner menus for the week. There is a well stocked pantry and many items to choose from for dinners. It became easier as the days went by and now it seems to suddenly be coming to an end. We really enjoyed being here and appreciate the opportunity offered to Observatory members.

We have had plenty of free time but unfortunately we had a ‘typical’ Mount Washington weather week of fog and rain. We did manage to hike down to Lakes of the Clouds one day when there was a brief break in the weather. All in all it was a great week.
