Sunday Vista Blogging XVI - Everest

One day (or several months...) late. So what? It's August.

Thanks RT, and you're welcome.

After 3 hours of driving across Himalayan terrain (there was a dirt "road" that would more accurately be called a path) we arrived at base camp at about 9 am. When we got there, clouds covered the whole bloody thing. We hung around and hiked away from base camp a bit, and the clouds continued to separate. At about 10:30 - BAM! - we got this. It stayed that way for about an hour, and the clouds passed in front of Everest again.

So did you do nude climbing? I hear it's the rage at Everest this year.

Welcome Kristen,

No, we didn't even climb it clothed. We ain't that crazy. We were just visiting.

Heck, it was cold there in the middle of July in jeans and a coat ... wouldn't like to think about how that would feel nude...
