Death by cookie.

Hello, my name is Zach Allen and I am addicted to cookies! If it is chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, Christmas cookies or my personal favorite banana chocolate chip cookies they will be devoured quickly. Just a fun fact about myself.

During a short visit from my wonderful girlfriend Colleen last week, I received a gift of four boxes of Girl Scout cookies!!! It was a great visit and thank you very much Colleen! We are enjoying what is left of them and I did save them to bring up to the summit to share with everyone. Then with Seek the Peak yesterday, our fantastic volunteers this week Linda and Mary made over 400 cookies for the event. Mounds of chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies were found in the kitchen as hikers toured the observatory. The summit is now in a super surplus of cookies. So basically we have roughly over 500 cookies that must be eaten. I figure I can handle the task by eating my share.

Thanks again to everyone for making Seek the Peak a great success! The middle of the day was full of tours and it was great turnout. The weather also cooperated bringing some short periods of light rain to the summit but no thunderstorms were in sight! Also a thank you to the extra support that assisted in tours and answering questions for our Seek the Peakers. The summit and valley staff hopes to see you all again next year for our 8th annual Seek the Peak hike-a-thon. I am getting hungry now and it is time to go eat some more cookies!
