Scotland…Ben Nevis..and the Crowley Boys

Ben Nevis is the tallest peak in the United Kingdom.  4,409 feet above sea level.  (Yes, the Grunge could find it on the F-111 radar!)

Ben Nevis became the location of choice recently for a Crowley family get-together.  Here it is in Charlie Crowley’s (Class of 1970) own words: “Last week I was visiting with my brother Steve (’72) and his family in Scotland.  The trip was in part a rite of passage for his son, BenNevis Whitman Crowley, named after the highest point in the UK, Ben Nevis.  Four of us took the time to climb the mountain.  Of course no summit picture would be complete without a photo of the Wabash flag wife Mary made for me 30 years ago.  It’s always in the pack ready for a photo op.  The guidebook said “from the summit you can see for 175 miles.”  That must have been on one of the other days of the week.  In hindsight, visual marketing of the College is not as effective in the middle of a cloud!”
