Sometime during our time in North Hero this July, Rickey and I likely will be kayaking a section of the Lamoille River – perhaps from somewhere in Milton VT to the Sand Bard State Park or maybe under the Sand Bar Bridge to the Apple Island Marina on the South Hero shore. Rickey will be doing this as her annual Prouty fund raiser and I will be doing it as my annual Seek Your Peak fund raiser for the Mount Washington Observatory. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support my hike.  

Since 1932, the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has been observing and reporting on Mount Washington’s infamous conditions from their mountaintop weather station, maintaining one of North America's longest continuous climate records. The data they collect is utilized in forecasting models, weather reports, landmark climate research and a variety of educational outreach. Through research and education, the Observatory is working to inspire the next generation of scientists.

Please join me in supporting this legendary institution by donating towards my hike. All gifts are fully tax-deductible and will help Mount Washington Observatory continue their important work in the Home of the World’s Worst Weather.

You can help support me by making a secure online donation using your credit card. Click on the Donate Now button to the right. If you prefer to send a check, you can mail it to me or to Mount Washington Observatory, Attn: Seek the Peak, PO Box 2310, North Conway, NH 03860.
