Its snowing here at 16 k and the Himalayan grandfather’s of Lobuche peak and the fin of the Khumbu glacier herald our arrival. 5 hours and 4k feet in 5.2 miles was our chore for today. It was cool as we enter the clouds and gloves, toboggans and buffs are our battle raiments. We passed the Scott Fischer memorial, a reminder of the seriousness of this game.
Laurel is smoking me up the hills and is working to spend time in Basecamp with me. We shall likely arrive late tomorrow, depending on our group disposition. I have really enjoyed all the great comments. Due to limited internet and power up here, I am unable to respond individually. But thanks for thinking of us. More to come.
