Blue Dot: Mountains to climb, twins and more: a conversation with Majka Burhardt
Dave visits with world-class mountain and ice climber and all-around great Mom Majka Burhardt. Majka is the leader of Legado, an NGO devoted to stewardship for indigenous people around the world and the special places they live. She is the author of the new book, More: Life on the Edge of Adventure and Motherhood.
In her book, she recounts through journal entries her roller coaster ride through the experience of going from a full-time climber and guide to the new mother of twins. It's an honest and amazingly candid portrayal of the struggles moms can go through to figure out one of the greatest challenges anyone faces -- being a good parent!
