Woman Summits Mt. Everest With Broncos Flag

MT. EVEREST, Nepal (CBS4)- A woman climbed to the summit of Mt. Everest with some very precious cargo-- a Denver Broncos flag.

Kim Hess posted the pictures on her Facebook page of her summit on May 21.

She posted, "I danced on the summit of Mt Everest (29,034ft). I pushed my body further than I knew possible and after patiently waiting for the stars to align my soul touched the sky. Thank you Mt Everest for opening your door, inviting me in to visit, and letting me stay awhile."
