Tribute to Sir Edmund Hilary

Here’s to Sir Edmund Hilary and him accomplishing what many of us can only dream of. Having climbed a few small mountains myself, I cannot imagine how I can scale Everest. But I am happy with just Kinabalu.

I think besides being the first to scale Everest, what is more admirable about this beekeeper from New Zealand was his humility, and his many contributions to the Sherpa community.

A very good write up of him can be found in this National Geographic Article.
