I wanted to take my passion for cooking to new heights, and a week as thevolunteer cook at the Mt. Washington Observatory atop New England’shighest peak sounded awesome.
To cook for non-picky people who like to eat is a gift, and the bonusesare just heaped on top of that. Hanging out in the weather room watchingthe most variable, dangerous, and gorgeous weather in the world…to lookdown into the valley in a clear nighttime moment and see magical lookingvillages…to go outside and oh-so-briefly experience wind chills in thesingle digits while at the base of the auto road it’s in the 60’s… thesethings are priceless!
If you’re not already a member of the Observatory, you’ve got to join andcome up. Maybe you can’t carve out a week to volunteer on the summit, butjust taking a tour through the facilities – especially the livng quarters- is very eye-opening… weather or not!
