This is Day 1of my 7-day photo challenge. I was nominated by a friend to post one nature photo a day for 7 days on Face Book and nominate a new person every day. Photos don’t have to be recent. They can be sometime during your lifetime but taken by “YOU”. The goal is to flood Facebook with beautiful nature photos.
This photo was taken in Alaska when we were on vacation celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary
Picture of Mt. Everest taken by me from the base camp , before my climb 15 years ago. As you can see the base of the mountain to the top does not look very tall. The base is at 14000 feet above sea level. From the base to the top is only 15029 feet.
Mt. Denali base is at 2000 feet above sea level. Therefore from the base to the top of Denali is 18320 feet. As a mountain Denali is taller than Mt .Everest. However the peak of Mt. Everest is at 29029 feet above sea level and is the tallest mountain peak in the world.
Just kidding guys I did not climb Mt.Everest. If I did attempt it 15 years ago , I would not be giving you this information and would never have met all you nice folks at RU 64.
