Hello Everyone.

We were foot soldiers today,  we marched our way into Lukla in great style. The last hour is all up hill,a nice pump to finish the day. Doctor Scholl’s was our best friend. A bit of overcast kept the temperature just right for this lowland trek, 10,000 ft. After about three weeks in this land of giant mountains, for some, it’s time to hit the beach. I could call this one heck of a fishing trip. We all received a license, no poachers, played by the rules. We casted our lines, used every trick in the book. Caught some big ones and a trophy for a few. We all leave with more experience and respect for this type of event in our lives. The Dudh river, a constant companion on the hike out,loads of blooming rhododendron a nice farewell. Always a pleasure to work with High Altitude Dreams our local outfitter. The team from the states way to go! Hope to have another chance to play with you all in my office soon.

Thank you all out in cyber land for following this trip, get out while you can. I will start working my way back to the Big E and blog ya later.
