Warm, warm, warm, warm…

Sunrise over the southern peaks…

I suppose that if you are trying to instruct photography on Mount Washington in January, weather like yesterday is just about what you dream of. Warm temperatures, manageable winds, and what the heck; throw in thin veil of clouds to make the light really pop. That’s what our Edu-trippers were treated to from the time they arrived to the colorful sunset. Leader Ned Therrien enthusiastically led the group around the summit for the best views and scenes, and I think everyone came away with great shots. The photo above was taken yesterday morning, highlighting the good weather for the day.

Weather has taken a turn for the worse (and absurd) this morning. Low clouds have filled the sky, and rain and fog are threatening. The absurd…temperatures continue to rise, now in the upper 30s, threatening today’s record high of 42. Warm weather should hold tomorrow as well, and with a cooler record of only 37 for the date, midnight should make short work of that tonight!

On a side note this morning, a few spaces still remain on many of our upcoming overnight trips, for more information on opportunities to experience the beauty of Mount Washington yourself this winter… Click HERE!
