Hey, my name is Carson I'm 20 years young and a Colorado Native. I have a high passion for adventure and the outdoors. I love to climb, backpack, snowboard and I'm a huge coffee addict. Talk to me, get to know me. 


On May 1st 1963 Jim Whittaker and Nawang Gumbo climbed through 70mph winds and negative 30-degree temperatures to plant the American flag on the summit of Mount Everest for the first time.
Sherpa Gumbo, who had never before used a camera, turned Jim’s NikonF vertical to capture this iconic image.
