What an amazing event Seek the Peak was this year. It's taken me several days to process pictures and write this very long blog post and it was almost as emotional a journey as the event itself. The Kilted Clan was back in force this year as we paid our final respects and tribute to our great friend Brad who we lost this April. The last five years have been an amazing journey with the friends of the Mt Washington Observatory and the rest of the White Mountain hiking community. We have Brad to thank for bringing us all together and we will never forget him.


Here's the whole story: http://theramblingsblog.blogspot.com/2012/07/seek-peak-2012-we-hike-for-brad.html
