    there is a room with 3 bunk beds that sleep the 6 people on the trip and i think peter slapped up stairs some ware and Michele took the conference room.

    I'm sure the GMA people used the bunk room and any were they could put a sleeping bag down

    Default Sleeping Arrangements

    There is the 6 person bunkroom as charlie mentions, and also 2 3 person bunkrooms for the Observers/interns and a 2 person bunkroom for the volunteer(s). In addition to that, there is an extra bunkroom for Obs employees on the State Park side, which I believe they used to open up their own rooms for the GMA crew.

    Default Full Moon

    If you're like me, (and I hope for your sake you're not!), you may have wondered, "What must it be like for the Night Observer at the MWO?"

    Well, I've had the privilege twice now to go outside on the summit of Mount Washington around midnight under a (near) full moon. Last time the conditions were cold, but not like last night. Last night was around -10 windchill with 50mph winds, so it was rather difficult to get good pictures, even with a tripod which I held down as best I could while shooting. The reflection of the bright moon on the snow helped to enhance the scenes. Of course, as always, the pictures never do the scene justice, but I tried anyway.



    The Stage office under the full moon. The Yankee Building in the background always has a light on at the door for late night checks on the equipment inside.



    The Tip-Top House as seen from the precipitation can.



    The Observatory Tower. The lights of Jefferson are below.

    We are back in the fog today, though at this writing the temperatures are up to 29 degrees with a 35mph wind making it feel like 12 degrees. Balmy!

    great shots! I love how it feels black & white until that little glow of orange is seen in the background.

    Default Hike Down

    That place gives me the creeps at night!

    KD-Hike down went well. I am a little bruised (the worst falls were at the bottom of the tux trail) but not bad. It was great to finally do the hike in winter!

    Default Hike down

    Lynn,
    I was worried about you guys, but then I realized, conditions probably weren't as brutal down below. I am only pulling your leg when I say this, but, it isn't winter yet! Glad you guys made it out well, and here's to your quick recovery from the bruises. Stay in touch!

    Thanks for taking the time to keep us all amused. It's almost like being there....well...not really but...

    Is that you at the very end of the obscast leaning against the wall with a blue shirt on and a strap over your right shoulder?
