Sir Edmund Hillary

New Zealander, Edmund Hillary alongside Sherpa Tenzing Norgay was the first people to climb to the summit of Mt. Everest in 1953. Before reaching fame and glory from the success of Mt. Everest, he was a pilot of flying boat Catalina planes and a beekeeper. This monument, in Mt. Cook village shows a young Edmund Hillary gazing out towards the tallest peaks of his homeland; behind the cloud on the left is Mt. Sefton of my previous image and to the right is Mt. Cook and Tasman. This life size bronze statue serves as a tribute to one of the greatest heroes of mountaineering. Sir Hillary still lives in New Zealand, and this year at the age of 87, travelled to Antarctica on his latest voyage.
