This Veterans Day we ran two trips, one in Colorado, and one in New York. The Colorado group climbed Mt. Elbert, the highest mountain in the state at 14, 433 feet or so. The New York group climbed rock for two days in the Gunks. The veterans and active duty military that showed up and climbed with us this Veterans Day was dynamic and diverse.
Not your average Veterans Day Parade Colorado
We had first timers and outdoor professionals. Male and Female veterans showed up to be contributing members of the larger VetEx team. The time spent out with all these veterans and all these service stories was nothing short of awesome. Veterans let their guards down with one another and out came the stories of war and civilian life struggles and success.
Thank you to all those who have served. These trips are for you!
