Blogging From The Top of Mount Everest

Eighteen-year-old Samantha Larson is the youngest foreigner to reach the summit of Mount Everest. All the time blogging about it on Blogger via satellite phone to her mom and brother in New York, who transcribed her thoughts.

This isn't her first time at the top of the world: she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2001 while chronicling the effect of altitude on heart rates for a science fair and summited Mount Vinson in Antarctica in 2005. Every climb has been accompanied by her father.

She is going to attend Stanford University in the fall. But first, she has to get off the mountain. You can get updates at her blog, Everest 2007.
