Once a year, a very special thing happens for each of the Observers on the summit. Vacation! Tomorrow when I get off the summit, my vacation will begin and I will not return to the summit until December 4th. With our schedule, normally we work eight days then get six days off, so with my ‘week’ off, I will end up with 20 days off for adventure. This year I am off to explore the weather of the US Virgin Islands. With an average daily temperature in the 80s (Fahrenheit), I am looking forward to thawing out a bit. I am excited for this experience and am looking forward to a different experience than Mount Washington’s. However, I will return in time for the start of ski season!
