22nd April , 2012 - Back to Pheriche

Today we trekked from Everest Base Camp twelve miles to Pheriche.  We lost a total of 3300 feet in elevation.  We watched a helicopter recovery of a Sherpa body killed in an ice crevasse in the Khumbu Falls the previous day.  His body was transported up to Camp 1 because of weather conditions.

Last night we listened to the snow and rock avalanches coming off the high peaks surrounding the Everest Base Camp.  It sounded like a jet landing in base camp or a thunderstorm.

Tomorrow we will trek twelve miles to Namche.  
As of today, everyone on our team made it to Base Camp.  It has been a wonderful, successful trek!
