Three Everest Climbers Die

Mount Everest, the granddaddy of all mountains continues to claim victims. According to recent news, it looks like three climbers have died recently (this being the beginning of the big climbing season up there). Oddly, they died while descending..OK, that’s not THAT odd, but it sure seems rather tragic that they’d make it to the summit and then die on the way down. But it’s been a busy season so far. Last week, officials said 42 climbers took advantage of improved weather to reach the summit from its Nepalese side.
