Paramotor over the Great Gulf

No two days on the summit are alike, and I always welcome the variety! This morning, I awoke and made my way up to the weather room to relieve Ryan. Shortly after discussing the schedule for the day, we noticed a strange sight out of our office window. A paramotor was sailing high above the northern Presidentials. I immediately grabbed my camera and headed outside to the deck where I saw nearly 7 more throughout the sky! It was a neat sight to wake up to. The rest of the day was quite eventful as well with all of our Seek the Peak hikers making their way into the Observatory. It was wonderful chatting with all of you who stopped through, and on behalf of the entire Observatory, thank you so much for your support!
