In July of 2021 I'll be climbing 6,288-foot Mount Washington, N.H. as a participant in 21st annual Seek the Peak, in support of the legendary non-profit Mount Washington Observatory. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support my hike.
My Dad, John F. Adams inspired me, at least as many as 60 years ago, when I was four, to enjoy the outdoors and hiking, in particular. Naturalist John Muir, since the 1800's, has inspired man, many more to explore, study, and be good stewards of, as he referred to nature as; ..."the inventions of God." I have recently completed a few "training hikes" in Tennessee, to see if this old body, is still up to more challenging hikes, than I might encounter in beautiful, but not mountainous Ohio. This year, I am excited for the chance to hike Mount Washington, but also, Mt. Adams in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains. Our friends, the Allen's visited Mount Washington with us, by vehicle in 2019, and I was reminded of the great work the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory continues to do. I appreciate your support of me, through a donation, of any size, that goes to benefit MWOBS, and let's me know, you are right there with me, in this excursion. Your consideration is much appreciated! My Dad, would surely have a big wide grin on his face, at this effort!
Due to the generosity of supporters the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has been observing and reporting on Mount Washington’s infamous conditions for nearly 90 years 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.
Please join me in supporting this legendary institution by making a donation towards my outdoor adventure. 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.

Mt. Washington is high! Better take lots of Oreos for energy!

To my parents who took me to Mt Washington on my first trip to New Hampshire around 1955.
This is in memory of my dad, JOHN F. ADAMS, who inspired me love for hiking, almost any trail. Gone from our sight in February 2001, but close in memory, every day. Love you, Dad!
