First American To Summit Everest Reflects On A Life Well-Lived

 

50 years ago Jim Whit­tak­er stepped out of his com­fort zone to become the first Amer­i­can to stand on the sum­mit of Mount Ever­est. Since that momen­tous achieve­ment, he has spent his life giv­ing back to our plan­et in hopes that future gen­er­a­tions will receive as much ful­fill­ment from our nat­ur­al world as he has. This inspi­ra­tional video cel­e­brates the moun­taineer in every­one, and reminds us that if you aren’t push­ing your lim­its, well, you’re just not try­ing hard enough.
