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!
