Sharing The Summit With Family

Every once in awhile something special happens on the summit that brightens my day. Recently my Cousin and his best friend started out on the Appalachian Trail headed southbound. With no real way to communicate I told them to stop into the summit on their way through hoping I might get to say hello. Luckily I happened to be on the summit starting my shift and was able to host them on the summit for the night. Not only did they appreciate the use of my laptop to update family and friends, but I got to show them the summit I love so much. We ventured to the tower to play in hurricane force winds, showed them the instrumentation we use, talked over dinner, and laughed over a good movie. It was an awesome night of catching up and sharing the amazing summit of Mount Washington. If you are interested in spending a night on the summit I invite you to join one of our trips!
