Climb every mountain

Amherst Regional Middle School math teacher Steve Zakon-Anderson, left, and one of his students, seventh-grader Alex Sciaruto, right, talk with congressmen John Olver, second from left, and James McGovern near the Summit House on Mount Holyoke in Hadley Tuesday.  Olver and McGovern had just completed a two-mile hike up the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail with members of the Appalachian Mountain Club and came upon the ARMS seventh grade "Frost" team having a field trip at the summit. The hike was part of McGovern's ongoing tour of the new Massachusetts 2nd Congressional District from which Olver is retiring after 20 years. The Summit House, which overlooks the Connecticut River, seen in background, has been closed during a renovation to make it handicapped accessible.
