Words Captured Through A Camera Lens

Mount Washington Summit At Night
I have been living on the summit for three years and this past week has been one of the most tranquil. Day after day the weather remained calm and clear with incredibly crisp views. On one night, I was lucky enough to have a friend spend the night on the summit and visit with us. The bonus to this is my friend is an incredible photographer and captured the beauty of the summit in ways I could never explain. Looking at the images captured through his lens renewed a spark of enthusiasm for this mountain I call home. With hundreds of thousands of visitors, it is so few that actually get to see the crisp clear nights that make Mount Washington so awe inspiring. Besides our overnight EduTrips, it is nearly impossible to spend the night on the summit this time of year once the nearby Appalachian Mountain Club’s higher huts close. Being able to share images of the night sky that capture the beauty of my home is special. A special thank you goes to my friend Chris for capturing all these awesome images.
