Woman on Top of the World: Did you know? On May 16 (that’s today!), 1975, Japan­ese moun­taineer Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the peak of Mt. Ever­est, the tallest moun­tain in the world. Ear­li­er in the all-female expe­di­tion, Tabei was buried beneath snow for over six min­utes after an avalanche struck camp. Lat­er, she went on to become the first woman to climb the Sev­en Summits.

In oth­er news…

Moun­tain Hop: Did you know? Like all things curi­ous and awe­some, the Brooks-Range rab­bit logo was inspired by a chance encounter with a stranger from the East. The sto­ry behind it goes a lit­tle some­thing like this: Founder Matt Brooks was climb­ing along­side a Russ­ian, look­ing to make con­ver­sa­tion, when he noticed his moun­tain com­pa­tri­ot was wear­ing a rab­bit pin. Either out of con­fu­sion or as a token of friend­ship, the Russ­ian climber end­ed up giv­ing him the pin. Lat­er, back at the office, the Brooks-Range team decid­ed to fea­ture the pin on some prod­uct as a lark. The inside joke turned into a mar­ket­ing win how­ev­er, as cus­tomers became attached, some going so far as to call in and express their con­cerns over rumors that the com­pa­ny might pull it. The folks at Brooks-Range laughed and shrugged their shoul­ders and the rab­bit became the new face of the com­pa­ny. That a funky trin­ket that passed hands on a moun­tain could come to rep­re­sent a major com­pa­ny by hap­pen­stance is just anoth­er rea­son why the out­door indus­try is awesome.
