Relaxing After Work Walk

Alpine Flowers

After feeling a bit cooped up over the past two days and in need of some fresh air, observer Mike, museum attendant Ryane, intern Hanna and I ventured out for a stroll in the fog. We headed down the Auto Road hoping to get a glimpse of the sun overhead. Approaching the 7 mile marker we were privileged enough to have the fog lift for just a few short minutes and expose a distant cloud bank before it quickly fogged back in shielding the sun once again. We continued to walk down the road to the trail head for Alpine Garden. A spectacular spread of alpine flowers, as dainty as they may be, seemed to fill all the gaps between the rocks. It was a magnificent sight and a truly great feeling at the end of the day to be outside enjoying the weather Mount Washington is known for.
