My Mount Washington Weekend [VIDEO/PHOTOS]
Was lucky enough to spend some of my weekend up on the summit of Mount Washington at the Mount Washington Weather Observatory. Here’s my journey:
After the show Friday I drove up to see our friends Kaitlyn O’Brien and Ryan Knapp, weather Observers at The Mount Washington Weather Observatory and then made some new pals.
Here’s Caleb, Kaitlyn, Ryan, Arielle and Mike.
I was going to be covering The Mt Washington Auto Road 54th Annual “Run To The Clouds” a 8-mile road race up to the summit. (yup, you read that right) So, I thought it would be cool to stay overnight, check out the new Mount Washington Extreme Weather Museum (will have a video tour of that later this week) and cover the race in the morning. The great people at the observatory made it happen.
Look who also showed up. Former Weather Observer and show regular Rebecca “B-Money” Scholand.
Here’s Kaitlyn at her desk where we call her regularly. Fancy pants computer ey?
Here’s Ryan giving Marty The Cat a lil love.
Here’s the new Mount Washington’s Observatory Extreme Weather Museum. I will have a complete video tour of this amazing place later in the week when I have Sarah Long and Pete Bouchard in on Wednesday.
Two of the coolest cats you’ll ever meet. AJ Grimes and Andrew Tucker. Check out their incredible videos here: Andrew Tucker YouTube:
Here’s dinner made by volunteers Don and Judy. UNREAL Carnitas with rice and beans! Basically Spanish version of pulled pork. Just a fantastic night.
Here’s B-Money w. former Weather Observer Jimmy Salge. Now an incredible photographer. Check out Jim Salge Photography:
Here’s my sunrise video:
Here’s the beginning of the Run To The Clouds!
Guess this is why they call in The Run To The Clouds-
How bout this road. Brilliant place!
Put it on your must do summer list. GREAT DAY TRIP-
