Two More Forty-Sixers

paineShapiro01Advanced Section members Ethan S and Peter P finished their Adirondack 46ers Monday on Whiteface Mountain.  It was a family affair all around; with both a hiking trail, and a road going up Whiteface, both fellow campers and actual family were able to join in the summit celebration.  Among the party were Ethan’s father, David, who finished his 46ers 39 years ago as a camper at Pok-O-MacCready.  In addition, Peter comes from a long line of family members at camp, and is the first in his family to finish the 46.

“It was great having my parents with us,” said Ethan who added that the best part of the day was “the ovation we received when we got back to camp and entered the dining hall.  I’ve seen it happen for so many years and I was glad to finally have it be for me!”

Peter’s favorite part of the day was, “well, finishing the 46 was the best but, also, the few moments before we reached the top.  We were told to wait just below the top and it gave us some time to reflect on what we’ve accomplished.”
