It seems like there’s a “National Day” for virtually everything these days. While some seem a bit silly (like…National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day on February 11), but some we can definitely get behind. One such example is actually right around the corner.
August 1 marks National Mountain Climbing Day. It was established in honor of Bobby Matthews and his friend Josh Madigan, who successfully climbed the 46 high peaks of New York State’s Adirondack Mountains. These two young men climbed the final 46th peak (Whiteface Mountain) on August 1, 2015 and were formally inducted into the “Adirondack 46er Club” in May, 2016.
At Say Hueque, we believe everyone should climb a mountain at least once in their lives! It’s an exhilarating experience that comes with a big sense of accomplishment for those who reach the peak. We also happen to have some of the best mountains right here in South America, so to celebrate National Mountain Climbing Day, here are some of our favorite peaks and summits.
