Namaste friends, family and loved ones,
It was straightforward going for the first hour and then our trail steepened. We crossed the frozen Khumbu Khola as yaks passed by. There was a bit of rock hopping. We visited a mystical pass with monuments for fallen climbers and a mountainous back drop. Cameras out!
Team members are remarkably robust and healthy considering we are now sleeping above 16,000 feet. We’ll be getting up early tomorrow in hopes of arriving at Gorak Shep and climbing Kala Pattar before clouds roll in. Sweet dreams!
All our best, Carole & Vern Tejas and Team Khumbu
