Chris Poland ’98 and Kirk Elam ’98 scaled to the top of Grand Teton in the Grand Teton National Park in Jackson, Wyo., on July 26, 2011 at 8:40 a.m. “We brought a TCU flag up to the top to show our school pride,” Poland writes.
The Grand Teton is 13,779 feet above sea level, and the duo climbed almost 8,000 vertical feet in two days. “It definitely was the most difficult thing that I have ever done,” Poland says. “The view was spectacular, and the trip was personally fulfilling.”
