Thanks for the Unique Experience!

This week was a combination of hanging out, cooking, hiking, and watching the weather people. Most of the staff at the Mount Washington Observatory are meteorologists. The worse the weather the more excited people become. Cloud formations, sunrises, sunsets, and high winds are a cause for an outing to the Observation Deck.

My main take away is a much greater respect for this mountain’s weather. The weather at the top is much different than at the base. Hikers and visitors need to be prepared for extreme weather.
