    Mount Washington Featured in February National Geographic

    I'm cross posting a thread from the MWO forums, from Scot Henley, the Obs' Executive Director...

    Press Release:
    https://secure3.convio.net/mwobs/sit...e=feb08_natgeo

    From Scot...
    *****************************************
    Hi everyone,

    I'm so proud to finally share this news!

    Tomorrow, January 15, is the day when the February edition of National Geographic is released... and in its pages is a 12-page feature article about Mount Washington and the work of the Mount Washington Observatory.

    http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/20...gton/shea-text

    This article was two years in the making. Several members of the Observatory crew are in the photos, both in the print and web versions of the story. Nearly 8,000,000 National Geographic readers around the world will learn about this incredible place, and get a glimpse of what it's like to live and work at the Home of the World's Worst Weather.

    Once it goes live tomorrow morning, check it out-- especially the photos! One shot of observer Mike Finnegan is the most spectacular Obs "action photo" I've ever seen. Another is of the summit at night and it looks like another planet. Photojournalist Jose Azel did a fantastic job capturing the essence of winter on the mountain.

    The magazine arrives in homes beginning tomorrow and on newsstands on January 27.

    This link should be:

    Although right now, it does not seem to render correctly.

    Tom, your link now works, but I couldn't find any of the pictures w7xman talks about. Are they online or just in the magazine?

    Yes, here is a direct link to the photo gallery. I see that our own Mohamed Ellozy is quoted in one of the captions. I can't wait for the magazine to arrive in the mail.

    Thanks,
    Fixed it in the first post...

    As for pictures...

    I don't think that even the full article is on line, let alone the pictures, but between the two links, and the article now on the union leader's page, you can see a few.

    I don't subscribe, so I'm going to have to go down to the library today...

    Hit refresh. The same thing happened to me, but when I hit refresh it worked.

    Yes, I noticed that also the first time I tested the link while previewing my post, but it worked on all subsequent clicks. The gallery uses the Adobe Flash player, and it does occasionally seem sluggish loading a photo. Also the National Geographic Society's website may be getting a lot of hits. As just posted, hit refresh or try clicking the link again.
