We often share beautiful sunsets and sunrises, but today we are sharing this beautiful picture of inside of a cloud facing the general direction of where a sunset would occur. Considering this is our view for roughly 60% of the year, it's fitting.
We also want to give a gargantuan THANK YOU to each and every person who donated their time, effort, and money to our annual Seek the Peak fundraiser. We would not be able to do what we do without you! Everything you all do for the observatory is greatly appreciated. Sharing our knowledge, insight, and experiences with all of you is the least we can do. ... See MoreSee Less
Saw a beautiful rainbow this evening from west of Franconia ridge.
Love photos in the clouds. Everything is so peaceful
Had a great view today! Heading back home to Texas tomorrow!
That was our view as we reached the top on Friday. Sad I didn't get a summit view (again) for StP, but a good trip overall!
S.T.P great time, see you next year
I captured this last Labor Day weekend... the couple appeared out of the mist and I thought it was cool 😎
What a treat those beautiful sunrises and sunsets must be for you! They are treats for us as well but doubly so for you if this is your usual view.
Quite a bit of fog up there
See you 2020 for STP!
I didn't have the opportunity to come up the mountain when I was in NH last week. Next time. :)
When I was up there in September, several years ago, It was 52° and sunny. Wind was approximately 5 mph. Great, but unusual weather.
Still appreciate the pix!
Does it keep you cooler?
Must get there again.

Our friends at the National Weather Service in Caribou tell us things are going to heat up this weekend. The heat index could make for extreme conditions.
Please carry more water than you think you'll need, and be aware of the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

Help preserve alpine vegetation: If you use the Mt. Washington Auto Road to access backcountry ski terrain this spring, please realize that you are heading up to one of the most fragile alpine areas on the east coast. You can help preserve this unique habitat by how you park your vehicle and how you access the ski routes.
Please park only in the recognized parking lots and not along the sides of the road. If the smaller parking areas near the top are full, you should continue to the summit parking lots.
Help protect the fragile plants of the alpine zone landscape. Stay on a trail or step carefully from rock to rock, avoiding any plants, shrubs or grasses.
Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

There is to be NO SLACKING regarding respecting the environment.

Get up to see the Sword In The Stone this summer !
The Guardian Knight Awaits you with a nice approach hike to a perch, a staircase climb along a ridge carved with images of their order, from 1607, and a final pitch over a roof to anchors for a swing into the Vault of the Knight's Of Christ.
Vermont State Archaeologists confirmed the carvings on the waterfront leading to the mountain pass. I am working on getting a crew together to look around inside and photograph the interior for a film documentary. Anyone with Vertical Hauling/Camera Experience is encouraged to help.
Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest is feeling fantastic.
