Top of North America
You know my brother? The one who lives in Alaska? He climbed North America's tallest mountain. All twenty thousand and three hundred and twenty feet of it. He is absolutely the most incredible human being that I know. He and his team battled extreme cold, wind that would knock them to their knees and 70 pound packs to summit the tallest point in the continent of North America known as Mt. McKinley/Denali. I religiously followed the cybercasts and prayed. He was extremely lucky to have summited as many climbers in earlier expeditions never got clear weather to make it to the top. God kept him safe and provided the opportunity to achieve his goal. We are all so ecstatic!
Oh and see the second picture from the bottem? He's holding a note that says "Nicole Rocks". He took the time to make and hold that up and take a picture at the top of the mountain. I told him he doesn't have to get me a Christmas gift, ever.
