SUMMITING SQUARE TOP
Wind River Mountain Range, Wyoming
In the heart of The Wind River Range, there stands a monolith tall and proud. It looms in the background of the green river lakes, beckoning all who see it to brave its granite walls and steep slopes to the summit. Not all have the courage for such a quest, do you?
Whether you do or you do not, you will discover what it means to be truly courageous on this three day journey to the summit of Square Top Mountain. This quest will not only test your bravery and give you skills for the wild, but will challenge your faith in God as you learn the core values of becoming an Unusual Soldier for Christ. You will learn that the greatest quest of courage is not summiting a peak but following God to the end. Are you ready to join this quest?
