Karen Exceeds 1/3 the Altitude of EBC!

Karen continues to take advantage of the close proximity of a number of hills (aka “mountains” if you live in VA or IA like the rest of us). This past weekend she and her husband, Larry hiked to the top of Stukel Mt, ascending about 2,000 ft and topping out at an old fire lookout at the top (6,545 ft). As a point of reference for what we are all preparing for, the altitude of Everest Base Camp (EBC) is 17,600 ft!

 

Based on the pictures the weather looked a bit windy and blustery, but these hikes are becoming routine. Clearly she is ready for the big excursion. Looks like she got to test out a new jacket and gloves due to the cooler weather…
