The Aspirant - Driven by Dreams
|Author:||Roger E. Beaudoin, Jr.|
At age 15 Roger Beaudoin's fascination with the Matterhorn was seeded. On a family trip to Disneyland, he stood in awe before 300 foot high replica of the Alp's most famous mountain peak. Later in 1988, as graduate student on holiday, he saw the real Matterhorn for the first time on a train to Zermatt, seated among a throng of mountain climbers. If they can do it, he thought, he could too, and he determined he would summit it someday.
