This was the fourth year now that I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in such a great event. Every year it just keeps getting better, and everyone associated with setting it up did a truly outstanding job. It has become such great time for so many good friends to get together, hike, and support the Observatory.


And every year it's nice to take a different route up and down the mountain. This year we chose to hike up The Jewell Trail, and take the cog down. This was the first year I didn't actually hike back down, but I had never taken the cog the entire distance, so it would be a nice treat for a change.

We began at 5:30am sharp, and it was just an absolutely beautiful day to summit Mount Washington.

The Grey Jays were up for a little breakfast along the way.

The more I look at everyone's pictures, I am realizing just how short I really am compared to everyone else....:rolleyes:
