Mt. Everest Expedition: New Snow At Base Camp

We awoke to a fresh blanket of snow here at Everest Base Camp.  That didn’t slow down the Sherpa team from making a run to Camp 2 with more equipment for future forays. The snow has already melted away here but the upper mountain still shows some fresh snow. 
It is great to see our climbing team get some time up high. They will return to Base Camp tomorrow but will be heading back up for another rotation soon.  The pieces of the puzzle are fitting together nicely thus far.
