On the Subject of: High Adventure.

Perhaps it's the recent cold snap. And perhaps attendant to the fact that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Norgay Tenzing accomplished the near impossible, summiting Mount Everest(ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ) on May 29th, 1953, with unfalterng style (see Nigel Cabourn). In either case, take notes. It's cold out there.

Wonderful picture grabs of Hillary and Tenzing. He followed this most amazing feat by devoting a large portion of his life by helping the Sherpa people of Nepal.
