#ClockedOut: National Take A Hike Day!
#ClockedOut is a series of blogs showcasing what our staff does when they're not working at the web's best registrar! Since it's National Take A Hike Day, we talked to one of our Marketing gurus, Robyn, who crossed hiking to Everest Base camp off her bucket list!
"I guess you could say I'm a bit adventurous. I've always loved the outdoors and then I married someone who likes it even more than me. Two years ago, we checked off my #2 item from my bucket list and trekked to Everest Base Camp. Now, mind you, we did not go any higher than Everest Base Camp - which is at a mere 17,598 ft or 5,364 m - because although I've always dreamed of seeing the highest mountain in the world, I don't feel the need to actually stand at the top of it (and thankfully neither does my husband). Seeing Everest was an amazing experience, but as you trek through the Himalayas, you realize that it's actually quite an ordinary looking mountain. It doesn't really stand out and if it weren't the highest, no one would know its name. Instead, a local favorite is Ama Dablam - a very unique looking mountain that you definitely can't miss. The trek is an amazing experience that is highly recommended for any fellow hikers out there!"

Whether you decide to challenge yourself to hike up to Everest Base Camp or hike a local trail, celebrate National Take a Hike day simply by going outside and enjoying the outdoors! Hiking has also been proven to lower stress, strengthen bones and muscles, lower your risk of heart disease, and improve balance. Happy Hiking!
