ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A group of law enforcement officers from across the country began a climb of Mount McKinley Tuesday in honor of a fallen highway patrol trooper.
The group, Cops on Top, climbs a mountain every year in memory of a law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty. This year's team includes three from Montana, one from Indiana and a Forest Service worker from Utah.
"This is our first time; this is all of ours first time being up there, so we're kind of excited, but nervous at the same time," said Troy Bacon, from the Frankfurt, Ind. Police Department.
The team will make the trek carrying packs filled with gear, but also the heavy memories of loss.
"We're going to have a plaque in honor of him that we're going to take all the way up to the top with us," Caleb Pleasants with the Flathead County Sheriff's Office said.
This year the team will climb for Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Haynes.

That's cool. Unfortunately I'm from Iowa and it's way too flat for me to even imagine what climbing a mountain would be like! Think I'll stay safely on the ground.
