My Love Of Mt. Everest

I've always been fascinated about Mt. Everest. Whether I can read one of the many articles available or watch one of the numerous documentaries on TV.... I always wondered what had drawn people with a passion to climb the Mt. Everest, knowing that possibility that there may be a chance that they will loose some toes, fingers or god for bid their lives. Some have gone back again and again trying to conquer the mountain. Its always there calling and so beautiful.

I also respected Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay who have climbed Mt. Everest. I love the mountain.. but will always love it from afar. I love to hike, but seriously know that I will never be physically in shape to accomplish a feet like Mt. Everest. I personally want to keep my toes and my fingers. I'll stick to my little hikes that go here and there. I'm also content to read all the articles and watch the documentaries and gaze at the beautiful pictures.

Here is one of my many quotes that I like...
“You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things – to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated.” ~Sir Edmund Hillary

My hats off to all the people who have tried and succeeded and those who have passed on trying.
