Volunteer Thoughts

Completing my fourth Volunteer Week here on the Rockpile, I’m still amazed at all the new experiences there are to be had. On the second day of our shift, we had the pleasure of hosting an overnight trip for a group of climbers from faraway Denmark (Maine, that is). The group climbed up and down the mountain with warm beds and a great meal in between. The sunrises were spectacular, as were the sunsets. Weather changes constantly, as you would expect in New England, Winter to Spring and back to Winter. This is all possible because I became a Mount Washington Observatory member, and so can you. Check out the MWOBS website to find out how, and you’ll be glad you did! I am!
