An individual climbs Granite Peak in Montana as part of the U.S. Air Force 50 Summit Challenge Aug. 30. The U.S. Air Force 50 Summits Challenge was unofficially started by a team of Airmen in 2005 when they wanted to make U.S. military the first to have its members stand atop the “Seven Summits,” the highest peaks of each continent. After the U.S. Air Force Seven Summits Challenge was completed in May 2013, the founders decided to do a similar challenge in America. The Air Force 50 Summits Challenge was born. (Courtesy photo)
