After a quick snack, we chased the clouds to ascend Kala Pathar (18,450) to see the South Col, West South faces of Everest. We hung prayer flags and at last the clouds parted to give us a majestic mountain!!! Along the trail up Kalapathar, we were better able to see Everest BC at 17,580 ft with numerous tents set up. This is our goal for tomorrow. But TODAY most of us went as high as we will ever be from sea level.
Missing you lots Masers- I know you’d be loving every minute of the fifth Joely, Thanks for the very big surprise. Mom! I am sure you had something to do with that to Dad. I got a 360* movie for you. Love and miss you all.
