Father and son bonding moments often come while watching the big game, playing catch or fishing.
But for Tim Molinari and his 15-year-old son, also named Tim, the moment occurred 14,162 feet up on the second-highest volcanic peak in the continental United States.
This summer, the Molinaris, who live in Seymour, spent two weeks out west, where they climbed to the summit of Mount Shasta in northern California and went cliff jumping into Crater Lake in Oregon.
“It was something we had always wanted to do,” Molinari said of his and his son’s interest in mountain climbing.
With Tim a freshman at Seymour High School and growing up faster than his father would like to admit, there was less time for them to spend together.
