What a week at the top of New England. This was my first solo week and needless to say I was quite busy. A photography EduTrip early during our shift had banner weather which gave everyone a chance to get some great photos in their time here. I also had a great time getting to know the EduTrip participants in addition to the various hiking groups and guides.
In addition to experiencing several great groups of people, I got to see some weather extremes as well. Winds reached over 100 mph when a cold front went through with several hours of 32F degree weather just prior to its passage. The summit was in soup fog when we arrived last week and today I depart under a blue sky. I hope to get some more great photos on my way down. Maybe next winter, a hike up will come to being.
Special thanks to the Observatory crew for helping out when things got hectic.
