Phakding-Lukla-Kathmandu

Hello Everyone,

We are all back safe and sound to Kathmandu and are relaxing at the Yak and Yeti hotel! We are back one day early, but everyone was ready to be back in Kathmandu after a great trip. I will get a couple pics out tomorrow from the trek but it was a great group and another great trek to basecamp! Thanks to Kathy, Lori, and Dave for a fun trek! It was a quiet trekking season in Nepal this Fall but hope to see many people return in the Spring! Nepal needs us to keep returning, trekking, and climbing!

Thanks for following!
