Alice Aho celebrated her 104th birthday as an active grandmother and great-grandmother, showing her family that she’s still up for a great adventure. Aho reportedly told her daughter-in-law that she wanted to scale Mount Hood in Oregon for her 104th birthday, as a homage to her younger days, before she had children, when she and her late husband used to be avid mountain hikers.
Wanting to fulfill Aho’s request, her family decided to take the great-grandmother to Mount Hood to live out her dream. Although Aho couldn’t climb the mountain as she had done in her youth, she managed to use her walker to get to the ski-lift, which took her 7,000 feet up the mountain. Escorted by two of her grand-children and one great-grandchild, she explained that the last time she had climbed the mountain, there was more snow.
According to KPTV, Aho reached the top of the chairlift with her family helping her to exit the chairlift and step onto the snow. There, the family sang happy birthday and set up a picnic.
Aho was reportedly delighted by the adventure and said, “So far, the mountain’s just the same as it ever was. No, it’s very nic.e I enjoy being up here.”
