Student News: Joe, Jim and Josh Neal

Joe, 9, Jim, 7, and Josh Neal, 5, reached the summit of Colorado’s highest mountain — Mt. Elbert, which is 14,440 feet.

It was an epic climb for the boys, taking 7 hours (including a 2-hour weather delay) to summit and 4 hours to get down. Other than a small desire to mutiny at 14,000 feet, all three did great.
