It’s time to Seek The Peak July 21 and hike Mount Washington!

sign at end of Crawford Trail at Mt. Washington summitSeek the Peak is an annual event to support the Mount Washington Observatory by hiking to the summit of Mt. Washington. It’s not a race, so you can choose any trail and any pace you wish to reach the top. Mt. Washington has some of the worst weather in the world, but some of the best views, too. On a clear day, you look east from the summit across Maine all the way to the Atlantic, north to Canada, and west to the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks beyond.

Seek the Peak is the biggest fund raiser for The Observatory, which is a private, non-profit organization that maintains the weather station at the summit, conducts research and educational programs and helps interpret the heritage of the Mount Washington region. In addition to recording and disseminating weather information, it serves as a benchmark location for many types of severe weather research.

Since 2001, Seek the Peak has raised nearly $1,000,000 for the Observatory. Participants enjoy a kick off party in North Conway, NH on Friday evening, tours of the Observatory at the summit and a post-hike celebration complete with live music, a turkey dinner and lots of raffle prizes. For more information and to register, visit the Seek the Peak website. We make a donation to the Observatory for each of our guests who Seek the Peak, so plan your hike and book your stay for the weekend of July 20-22, 2012, at the Inn at Ellis River now!

Let’s celebrate National Waffle Day (August 24) all month ~ this special breakfast treat deserves it. Why August 24?
