Laura on Top of the World

Laura called my cell phone from Camp 4 so excited she could barely talk. She summited Mount Everest with her sherpa last night. She said she was in a tent by herself resting since the rest of the family hiked down to camp 2. She is the youngest female Canadian to summit Mt. Everest at age 20. I am so proud of all of them.

Hooray! Congratulations. Successful summits for all and everyone safe! What a great outcome. You must be sad that you are not there to share it with them, but excited for them as Mom's always are.
What a great accomplishment. I cannot imagine taking off up Everest alone with a sherpa so I admire her bravery as well as her achievement.

Quoting Laura, "You can do anything you want to if you put your mind to it." We are overjoyed. What an awesome feat for the Mallory family! M & E

Congratulations, Laura! WOW!! And to all of the Mallory's! You have made Canada proud! (How about some Mallory's in Canadian government? - we need people like you at the helm!) Thank you for letting us share your excitement! More prayers for all for a safe descent and homecoming.

CONGRATULATIONS from the Robinsons!!! What a fantastic accomplishment, and what a fantastic reflection of your strong characters ... dedication, tenacity, bravery, and many more. We were really pleased to hear that Laura also recovered so quickly and was able to summit as well!! Our prayers go out to all for a safe descent.
We look forward to a gathering of the clan and an opportunity to see the pictures and hear all about the adventure.
Congratulations to all. You must be very proud!!
