Googled for the 3 names. Lewis and Clark to the Pacific coast and the 'Endurance' of Shackleton to Antarctica. Apparently Shackleton's was all the more amazing.The'Endurance' was crushed by ice. The crew had to survive in the cold and amazingly none died. Thanks Brian, for this bit of American history Hank

What a test of endurance ~Enjoyed the scenes from the challenge ~
What an amazing accomplishment that your haiku bring out well, and the black & white pictures heightens the effect.
Nice scene of challenge
They're mad, but remarkable people. I guess we have to be mad to thrive.
Good use of haiku form.
i love when people are brave enough to try things that no one did before..going to the extreme...endurance for sure...have high respect for them..
When you think about the equipment they had back then to what they have now, it was an even more amazing climb.Well penned Hank!
Coronation joy... and maybe pride. If I remember it correctly Sir Hillary visited my part of SE Asia in 2003 (I remember the media here raving about it).Sorry for the late visit. My internet was acting up. Have a great week.
What a nice tribute to these men and their accomplishments. Well written. Thank you.
"pull of challenge" just one example of the excellent writing here!
