the big "M"

So I know some of you have seen my team in training blog and have seen these already I just had to pass it on again.  by the way shameless plug I am still in need of donations to help leukemia reseach and treatment anything will help I need to reach my goal by the end of July 

My husband and I attempted this hike about 5 or so years ago in march when it happen to about 40 degrees.  we didn't have the right clothes and about froze to death at the first switchback between the cold air and the altitute we didn't go any further.  this time was different.  it was 85 degrees and we were determined to make the short 3/4 mile destination. Located behind the university of montana (dad went there many years ago so its a special place for me)
