Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 5, Tuesday
Location: Lukla at 9,700 feet.

Sunny, lovely. Hiked 3 hours to Phandin Yeah! We are on the trek. We had to wait about 3 hours at the airport for the clouds to lift. Crazy place with expeditions and their gear piled everywhere. To check in you had to climb over the gear. Incredible flight with great views of the peaks, glaciers, rivers....we feel lie we are 3 in the Himalayas. The landing strip is the main street in Lukla. WONDERFUL hiking past returning trekkers, glad to be back where it is warmer, about 55 in he sun. We walked past lots of small villages, people working the fields, buffalo plowing and high above the roaring river below. After all this time hard for may to be here, for ma y a life lig fantasy to trek here.

You have to be the highest Corry "mascot" ever! When you reach your highest spot,you must celebrate with a song: "I'm a 'mascot'/you're a 'mascot'..." etc. Can't wait to see the pictures. Enjoy every minute on the Roof of the World!
