I have been out of internet service for some time. Just got back to Namche Bazaar this afternoon after a long hike through sleet, rain, snow and finally some welcome sunshine. I came down from Gokyo (16,600 ft. approx.) since my cold wasn’t improving in altitude – nor was I getting much sleep. That’s one of the most common problems in staying in high places. I’m including a couple of photos from the top of Gokyo Ri (17, 684ft) showing the glacier flow and the small village of Gokyo from part of the way up Gokyo Ri as well as the four of us on top. That’s Lonnie, me, Pascale and her Sherpa guide named Dendi. In the next few days I hope to catch up with my posts. One very big bummer is that the sensor on my Canon G11 went out leaving me with just my iPhone to try to capture this beautiful countryside. I didn’t notice it until I looked at them in the computer and saw all the distorted pixels in some really precious photos I had taken. Again, a real bummer for me.
