Yesterday was the climax of many months of planning and hard work to make Seek the Peak come off with flying colors. You couldn’t ask for better weather with warm temperatures, dry conditions and low winds.

At the Summit several hundred hikers consumed over 800 homemade cookies and enjoyed tours of the Observation area, Instrument Tower and living quarters. Marty even stopped by a couple of times to say “hi” when he wasn’t chasing a chipmunk or sleeping from all of the exercise.

This year we also had our Annual Meeting during the After Party giving all of the attendees a high quality, inside look at everything we do.

Seek the Peak has grown to become a destination sporting event – “The nation’s premier hiking event” sponsored by Mount Washington Observatory.

Our new Directory of Research Eric Kelsey got to see firsthand how we function and can bring such a large event together. Our new Director of Summit Operations Cyrena Briede was also introduced via photos. Both of these individuals will be officially starting with the Observatory the first full week of August.

Our current Director of Summit Operations Ken Rancourt will be retiring in the fall and was given a few items including a grass skirt, shades, flip flops, Hawaiian shirt and lei so that he and wife Jane can spend a little time in the sun.
