On top of Bear Peak (8500 ft.) in Boulder, Colorado. Given the steep icy trails and windy conditions, it was excellent training for an upcoming climb on Mt. Whitney in California next month. It will be interesting to see how the snowpack is doing further West!

A fun time being interviewed for a new documentary on the "world's greatest mountains." I talked about our scientific work on the glaciers of Kilimanjaro. Interested in trekking to the top of Africa with us? Click the link in my profile and join us this summer!

It's been a great experience, speaking to over 4,000 Norwegian high school students about space, science, and exploration at the 2018 #youexplore convention! I told the story of my experience as commander for NASA HERA (human exploration research analog) XII - the importance of communication and team work to complete a mission. These skills are critical, no matter what you do in life.

Beautiful sunrise on Pico de Orizaba volcano. Though no summit due to icy and challenging climbing conditions, we still had a great time! The snow sample from the glacier is much cleaner (visually) than the samples from Iztaccihuatl volcano. We will have numbers (concentrations of contaminants) soon, upon return to the States.
