Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team in Pheriche

Hello from Pheriche! 14,042 feet but who’s counting.  After a nice dinner, the team is tucked away for the night.  Lot’s of hiking in all directions today.  Nice to have such great Sherpa support to be able to offer many options.  A few new altitude records for the team.  Another day of perfect weather, and trail conditions in great shape.  We are now above tree line, but lots of bushes still keep us thinking we are where life forms can survive.  It is a rather tough environment to be in, we welcome these islands of paradise called tea houses.  Plan is to take a rest day here tomorrow.  Some day hikes and a bit of training for my crew that will go with me to Island Peak in the not so distant future.  The surrounding peaks of Taboche (21,309’) and Cholatse (20,784’) always impress.  Crazy to think that the real big ones are up this valley and around the corner.  Looking so forward to reuniting with those views.
