Beautiful Days on Mt Adams
Quino and I were working for Northwest Mountain School to guide a group from the WSU Military Teen Adventure Camps, a unique program for the families of active duty and activated reserve military personnel. This team spent the four days and three nights climbing Mt Adams, most of whom had no backpacking experience before this climb, let alone climbing experience. Through determination and perseverance, everyone reached the summit. Sunset that evening never looked better!
I am tremendously proud of these climbers!
Statistics: Northwest Mountain School and WSU Military Teen Adventure Camps. Mt Adams (12,276 ft / 3742 m), Suksdoorf Ridge (aka the South Spur Route). 26-29 July 2011 - summit on 28 July.
