ORA’s Dr. Martin Summits Mount Whitney

August may be the Dog Days of Summer in the QCA, but ORA surgeon, Dr. Joe Martin, decided to beat the heat and traded in his sun hat & sandals for a ski hat & hiking boots!

Big shout out & congratulations to Dr. Martin (and his daughter) who hiked the tallest mountain in California – Mount Whitney!

Their adventure began in the wee hours of the morning – at 3:00am. It took about 14 hours round trip! That is an elevation of about 14,500 feet. Dr. Martin said “it was very, very challenging BUT the trail & views were spectacular!”

We’re loving the views too – and the hat!  Join us on Facebook as we congratulate Dr. Martin!
