North Conway, New Hampshire

It's that time again. Third time is a charm, right?  Not just does the MWOBS record weather, they provide vital forecasts to fellow hikers.  Their records help us understand our climate. Plus Marty, the cat.  I am more than happy to help fundraise for this New England institution.  And I figure I can take a break from being a Trailhead Steward to hike the highest peak in the Northeast.  Please help me out. 

On July 22, 2017 I'll be climbing 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire as a participant in Seek the Peak, a hike-a-thon fundraiser for the legendary Mount Washington Observatory. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support my hike.

Since 1932, the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has been observing and reporting on Mount Washington’s infamous conditions 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. Through research and education, the Observatory is working to inspire the next generation of scientists.

Please join me in supporting this legendary institution by making a donation towards my hike. 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.
