    Amazing and beautiful. Some days I think it would be pretty cool to wear the boots of Conrad Anker or Jimmy Chin.

    For 2 weeks twice a year, Mt. Erebus (the 2nd highest peak in Antarctica and ironically an active volcano) is under continuous alpenglow as the sun sits below the horizon all day and night. Seen here, the sun is below the horizon behind the photographer by the same angle as the full moon is above it.

    The fishtail peak of Machapuchare in Nepal, bathed in late evening sun and wind. This summit is off limits to climbers.

    Machapuchare is a sacred peak in the Hindu religion, associated with the god Shiva. Lord Shiva is supposed to live on the peak. As one of the last places on Earth where human beings had never set foot, naturally it was a target for Western mountaineers. Wilfrid Noyce came the closest anybody ever has to the summit on a 1957 expedition. The king of Nepal had asked Noyce to respect Hindu religious customs and not set foot on the summit. He and his climbing companion, A.D.M. Cox, turned back 150 feet short of the summit.

    Mou’a Puta is a spectacular peak on the island of Moorea, Tahiti.

    This mountain is famous for having a hole right through the summit. That geology is unknown to me.

    The ancestral story goes something like; the hole was formed when the demi-god Pai tossed his magic spear from Tahiti to prevent Rotui (mountain) from being carried off to the island of Raiatea by the god of thieves known as Hiro.
