    Default 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.


    Rime Covered Stage Office

    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.


    Rime Feathers

    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!

    Beautiful photos Kevin! I have to agree with you, Mount Washington is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the northeast. We look forward to seeing more photos of your week up there.

    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Default Thursday on the Summit

    Thanks all for following along! Today was not a very photographic day outside, in the fog all day with four inches of snow, very calm winds for a mountaintop, though! I did go outside and hike the perimeter of the summit and took a few pictures.

    Just a guess here but, I'm guessing by next Wednesday this will be one of the most replied to threads in awhile. Think about it, Kevin up there sharing his week with us and Jim S is heading up this weekend. Two amazing photographers together on the summit.

    Thanks again for taking us along this week Kevin, enjoy the pie!
