Local men take on Mount Rainer


Eric Fellegy of Brainerd, his cousin Steven Burnett of Lake Shore and friend Jamie Orten recently climbed Mount Rainier in Washington.

The group had been planning the trip for some time, Fellegy said, and left by Amtrak train on June 25. After a 30-hour trip by train — which included their train hitting 20 cows in the middle of the night — and an eight-hour car ride from Idaho for the last leg of the trip the group arrived at the mountain.
