Mount Washington Observatory Summit Volunteer 3/23-30/2011
Mount Monroe Snuggled in the Clouds
After a hiatus of just over 3 years I'm back on the summit living the dream, cooking, cleaning and hanging out on the top of New England. I've been associated with the MWObs for over 10 years now helping with their annual fundraiser (Seek the Peak) and occasionally spending an eight day shift with the crew. In return for my help I get to hike around and photograph what in my mind is one of the most beautiful places in the northeast.

On Saturday a group of 10 photographers will join us for the remainder of the weekend in a workshop, known as an edu-trip, led by my friend and fellow photographer, Jim Salge. You may know him here as W7Xman. He is a phenomenal young photographer and is well acquainted with the mountain as he was a weather observer here for about 4 years.
Over the next week I'll try to post updates and some photos. I hope you'll follow along and perhaps take an interest in this organization as it strives to provide the hiking community and the rest of the world with up to the minute weather data. Thanks!
