"36 hours ago on the highest point on the planet. Somehow I'm already on a plane flying across the Pacific back to the US. My head is spinning, my body is aching, and dont tell anyone, but I haven't showered yet. But the same grin in this photo is still plastered to my face. 😬 // This is the team that made our 23-day push to summit #Everest and #ChoOyu possible. I couldn't be prouder to call them teammates and friends and part of my @alpenglowexpeditions family. Thank you @dorjisherpa, Gyalzen, Urken, Mingma, Palden and @estebantopomena!" @adrianballinger #LiveYourAdventure #WhyIHike

"While proud of my Midwest roots, my move to the West in 2013 opened my eyes to the amazing outdoor terrain we can enjoy right here in the US. Over the years since our move my mind has been blown away as I've discovered for myself the landscapes and mountains that exist right here in our big backyard. As they say: a mind that is stretched by new experience can never go back to its old dimensions... I couldn't agree more." @scott_kranz #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure

"At 28,000 feet, after at least 30% of our oxygen system had failed, I pulled out my phone and snapped this shot while waiting for the last of our team to rappel the First Step (a steep technical rock cliff high on the NE Ridge of #Everest). Maybe it's only because I know what I was feeling, but I think our eyes show our fear. // As our small Cho-Everest team commits to another attempt, we are once again trying to game out all possible outcomes, to imagine all the things that could go wrong, even as we build the necessary stoke and confidence for success."

We have some amazing April winners from the #WhyIHike contest. Didn’t win? No worries we are awarding 25 winners every month through September. There is still lots of hiking to be done, just post a photo with #WhyIHike, #contest and @eddiebauer to enter.
One of our favorites this month was from @katheryne_rister in Peru, as she overcame her lifelong battle with a rare heart disease to complete a 16 mile trek at an altitude of 13,000-14,500 feet.
Thanks for sharing @katheryne_rister and inspiring us to get out and hike more.

Update from @adrianballinger as their team was about to make a push for the summit of Everest- despite perfect weather conditions they experienced a systemic failure of their oxygen systems. "Within an hour, almost 50% of our regulators had failed. And that's when Everest demanded everything we had. Climbers buddy-breathed with guides; our strongest Sherpa (those that still had functioning oxygen) handed off their oxygen systems to members and descended without; and everyone without question gave up on a summit to ensure our team got down alive. It's not the experience I wanted to have today. But I am so proud of our team. Thank you to Sherpa, members, guides and BC staff. You did it all right today." @adrianballinger #LiveYourAdventure #Everest2018 #Everest
