On or about July 18, 2020 I'll be participating in the 20th anniversary of the nation's premier hiking event Seek the Peak, in support of the legendary non-profit Mount Washington Observatory. I find that a bit hard to believe that this will be my 7th time in this event, but the t-shirt inventory doesn’t lie.
Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support my hike. In recent years, I have set my goal at $1,500 and have come close to meeting it; sometimes I have actually done a bit better. Like many institutions that depend on public attendance to support their mission, thanks to the pandemic, the OBS will likely miss much of the tourist-related income that they regularly get in the summer. Therefore, Seek the Peak is that much more important this year.
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 making a donation 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.
