Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Head Down Valley to Pheriche

Lulled to sleep by rock and icefall, what a night at Everest Base Camp.  A few comments that it was the best dinner since arriving in country.  Short lived this time, we are already back in Pheriche gearing up for Island Peak.  Should be deep sleep tonight here in the thick air of 14,000 ft. We’ll bid farewell to the Trek team in the morning.  As usual a whirlwind tour for the group.  Lots of firsts for all.  Once again the mountains provided fantastic views with perfect weather.  Times like these are what bring you back to challenge the physical and mental.  In time the photos will overshadow the tough conditions you are subjected to on trips like these.  Maybe Hawaii next time, but I bet down the road another adventure of this type just can’t be avoided.
