Seek the Peak

Sunset this evening!

Seek the Peak is more-or-less a wrap. Most of the summit staff was lucky enough to drive down this afternoon and partake in the delicious turkey dinner catered by Hart’s Turkey Farm and join in the festivities held at Great Glen Trails. Thanks to all our valley staff, volunteers, sponsors, and helping hands, everything went off flawlessly. It was great seeing familiar faces and meeting several new ones. And it was great cheering on the winners of all the various prizes. Then we finished the evening helping everyone clean up after the event then returning to the peak to see a bit of a sunset.

With better weather returning on Sunday, we look forward to some participants summiting and taking a free Observatory tour. And once our valley staff gets some much needed rest and relaxation after several days/weeks/months of work leading up to this event, we will get some more information (head count, prizes won, etc) to share with everyone. Thank you for everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing you up here at some point to take a tour of our work and thank you in person.
