In Law's Everest - Canmore, Alberta

I took my father in law on an epic adventure to his first ever summit. We started hiking before 3 am in hopes to witness a sunrise from the top. I think the hike almost killed the old man. I was absolutely blown away with the level of perseverance this man had. He struggled through every step from the midway point to the top. His body was not accustomed to hiking in thin air on steep slopes. He pushed through all of the pain just to see the sun rising from the top of the mountain. This is the photo of Shaun on the summit of Windtower in Kananaskis Alberta.
