73-YEAR-OLD WOMAN CLIMBS MOUNT EVEREST FOR SECOND TIME; BREAKS RECORD

21 May

The internet is on fire about a 73-year-old woman who climbed Mount Everest for the second time.  Tamae Watanabe broke her own previous record as being the oldest person to climb it, since she also did so when she was 63-year-old.  What an amazing thing to accomplish at that age!

It is interesting to think that only 4000 people have ever made it to the top.  Many others have lost their lives trying this nearly impossible feat, including the four who tragically died this weekend while attempting to reach the peak.

I’m not sure if it’s just me….but why would anyone ever want to go up that high?  Definitely not on my “bucket list”, think I will stick with going to the Zoo for my excitement!   And at 73-years-old, I will be rocking in a chair watching the sunset.
