Start of summer, and tours!

2010-05-27 22:55:22.000 – Brian Clark,  Observer and Meteorologist

For a lot of folks, I’m sure, tomorrow will be the start of Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial beginning of summer! We will undoubtedly see the results of this over the weekend here on the summit with our first truly busy days of the summer. Lots of people will be driving up the Auto Road, riding the Cog, hiking, and hopefully taking tours of the Observatory!

If you are already a member, remember that one of the many benefits of membership is that you can always stop in and tour our facility on the summit. If you’ve already had the full tour, stop in and we can take you in up in the tower to take in the view (if there is one!) and show you anything that has changed since you were last here. All you have to do is stop in our museum shop, check in with the museum attendant, and you can come on in!

If you’re not a member yet and plan on coming to the summit this weekend, or anytime this summer for that matter, be sure to become a member so you can get your first tour of the weather station and learn more about how we live on the mountain, what our living quarters and work space looks like, and most importantly, how we collect the weather data and observations that we have been for almost 80 years!
