edmund hillary died on the weekend. my updated banner image was taken on a flight between tibet and nepal in 06. in my opinion, ALL mountains in the himalayan ranges are impossibly high and impossibly dangerous and impossibly impossible to ever contemplate climbing.

when i walked to everest base camp [tibet side], in the two or so hours it took i was gasping for air and feeling very weary. and by all accounts the conditions for this short meander up a gravel track were fantastic.

i can’t even begin to think of what edmund hillary and  tenzing norgay went through in 1953 when they reached the everest summit.
