Why I Love My Job

2014-07-14 18:05:41.000 – Jan Berriochoa,  Summit Museum Attendant


Last week was such an exciting week up here on the summit. Thursday started with a beautiful sunrise and coffee on the observation deck. Friday after opening the museum at 7:30AM for the Mount Washington Auto Road’s Sunrise Opening, the day’s first visitors came down the new Extreme Mount Washington Museum . It just so happened that the first visitors were Alexander McKenzie Jr. , the son of one of the first weather observers for the Mount Washington Observatory, Alexander McKenzie Sr. and his wife. Saturday the auto road closed for the Climb to the Clouds. It was an awesome experience to watch some of the participant’s cross the finish line and to get my picture taken with our very own Summit Transportation Coordinator Slim Bryant, who was a competitor in the Climb to the Clouds. It is the weeks like this that are why I love my job!
