Six Silver Summit Sisters

BY MARCI KOSAC
@ VOL 8 ON MAR 06, 2019

Marci  Kosac signs up for adventure then learns about the activity. Her first kayak trip was with her 15-year-old son paddling 100 kms in the Florida Keys. Her first hiking trip, she trekked 12,000 m around Mt. Blanc en France. Her first cycling trip was from Prague to Vienna! The torturous West Coast trail was her first backpack trip. Tenting in February only seemed logical. 

Rhonda McMahon is an outdoorswoman - avid hiker, cyclist, and paddler. Rhonda is a certified Reiki practitioner, yoga instructor and Hike Ontario leader. She understands the importance of a positive attitude with personal transformation. A cancer survivor, she did not let osteoarthritis stop her finishing the 900 km Bruce trail in 2017.

After a slow start-struggling with severe asthma until my 20s, Becky  Matthews now enjoys mountain biking, triathlons, adventure races and most recently cold tent winter camping!

Six women answer a blog to summit Silver Peak in Killarney in February 2018. The resulting trip had moments of hilarity, strength and darn cold times!
