Mt. Washington-Foundation EDC2 Comments
Another Great Success on Mount Washington
Esprit de Corps Foundation Single Parents program cohort 8 last weekend March 13 – 15 successfully summitted Mount Washington in blizzard winter conditions. Friday afternoon we hiked up to the Hermit Lake Shelters and camped overnight. Saturday we started early at 6:30am climbing up the steep Lion’s Head Trail to above tree line where we got woken up by fierce 70+ km SW winds. Hats off to every one of the participants for their daring to accept such a new challenge in their lives, training hard for months and having the spirit and determination to reach there goal of climbing in winter the highest mountain in Eastern North America.
Not only did they realize team development, character building, personal strengths, but most important of all they are an huge example and inspiration to their kids. They dream it and they have the courage to ‘go do it.’ Bravo.
