Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp #1 & #2

Date: Wednesday, November 7
Location: Laboche, 16.200 feet.

Well it is real now. We are one day away from base camp. We can see the end of the valley. The mountains are hard to describe. Today was a perfect weather day. Such a deep blue sky! All day so it was even a bit warm. If you call a few jackets and hats a bit warm.

The picture is the pass where all the chortens, memorials are. We found Rob Hall, Alex Lowe, Scott Fisher. All who wanted to climb Everest passed this same place. Some now only have memorials. Very intense place. Some are getting colds, some feeling the altitude. But I think we will all make base camp. There are less people than last trip but still very busy. Sky has been clearer. We got here about 2 pm so lots of time to drink tea and rest. Being successful is a lot about resting and getting used to the altitude. Send you pic of base camp hopefully tomorrow.
