10th April - 2013 - Trek to Lobuche
 

The trek from Pheriche to Lobuche is relatively short but gains over 700m of elevation.  At 5000m, Lobuche is the first place where the team has felt the altitude. We spent some time getting pictures at the Everest Memorial on the way up.  It was cold and snowing, creating a somber atmosphere amongst the chorten stones, memorials and prayer flags.   After arriving in Lobuche, Obie had some food and went to bed for the rest of the night.  We kept a close eye on him and will take him back to Pheriche if he is not doing well.  Scott and Karina finished the wrap-up of the trek so far.  We are close to Base Camp and the time when the trekkers and climbers will go their separate ways.
