Students, it’s time for a bit of math! What’s 48 multiplied by 4,000? Feel free to grab a pencil … we’ll give you a minute to figure that out.
Whatever that answer may be (and we suspect the number is pretty darn big), it represents, a lot of steps, smiles, sweat, and above all, a milestone for Belmont Day School third grade teacher, alum, and parent Larissa Rochford ‘93 P ‘18. This past week, Rochford, bagged the last of the 48 White Mountain peaks that are above 4,000 feet high.
A daunting challenge known to many who hike the woods and wilderness of New England, Rochford started officially notching each peak in October 2020.
