I can’t believe it’s already June! It’s amazing how quickly the time passes, especially when off-weeks overlap between months. I was fortunate enough to take advantage of the beautiful weather this past off-week and enjoyed a great hike with my friend Ashley. Speaking of hiking – after looking at the calendar today, I noticed we’re getting closer and closer to our 14th Annual Seek the Peak Hike-a-thon event on July 19! If you enjoy spending time outdoors and hiking for a great cause, we need you! Participating in Seek the Peak is a fantastic way to get your hiking fix while simultaneously supporting the Mount Washington Observatory. If that isn’t enough motivation, you may also be interested to hear that there are several awesome prizes involved! If you’d like to sign up for this event, simply visit for more information on how to participate. If you click ‘Prizes’ on the left-hand side, you’ll get a sneak peek of what’s up for grabs! Phew, sneak peeks for Seek the Peak; now that’s a tongue twister! Happy hiking!
