Namaste friends, family and loved ones
Knowing how it tends to get cloudy in the afternoon, we got up an hour early to assure that we would get a great view of Everest today. And to optimize our chances we climbed a nearby mountain called Kalapatar which is 18,365 feet tall. Our efforts were well rewarded with spectacular views in all directions.
That’s Everest right behind the team in these photos. The higher we climbed the better our view.
The thin air is quite noticeable now and we are taking steps to enhance our wellbeing. We are employing several high altitude techniques to give us the best chance to get to Everest Base Camp. That is our goal for tomorrow morning.
All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
