It was with grit, enthusiasm and a little help from family and friends that helped Helen Horn summit the Lone Butte near Mile House at 96 years of age on June Helen made the ascent with the help of a group of friends and her son Gus to celebrate a year since suffering a stroke.
Since retiring Helen, with the help of her friends and family, has done her best to keep her mind and body active to keep herself healthy, happy and independent as possible. It was this same group of people who pushed her and encouraged her to them in hiking and climbing up the Lone Butte in mid-June. Helen said they brought out some chairs to just enjoy the view and share a drink and some food together as for many of her companions, it was their first time on the Butte including that of young Ben who, at one year of age, was the youngest person on the rock.
Helen added that they were blessed by the weather that day as, while it looked like it was going to storm, it held off and they instead were treated with sun and mild wind. She also quipped even the mosquitoes seemed to take the day off, which was a welcome relief. Helen appreciates the support of everyone who came with her on this climb and the encouragement they gave her throughout the climb.
It was an experience she greatly enjoyed and cherishes. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
