I am Edmund Hillary. Tenzing Norgay and I are climbing Mount Everest. Good thing we came in April, because snow levels are highest during September, or monsoon season.

hi this is Edmund again. The storm is very loud and we are scared. Let's just try to go to sleep and hope for the best. It is hard to sleep on this rocky surface. Plus, it is going to be a struggle climbing 29,035 feet.
Hi we are half way up the mountain. We met Dr. Barb Wheeler. She is our friend. We hope to get to the top of the mountain in two days.

Today is very cold. The temperature is -36 degrees. We can't find Barb. She left to do something last night, but now she's gone. The winds are getting strong, and I don't know how much longer this will last.

We are so close to the summit. We have to cross this lake before the summit. Did you know that the summit has been going down four meters? It's actually shrinking. Also, the mountain is also known as the " goddess of the world."
