Everest Base Camp Trek & Island Peak Climb: Grom & Team Take Another Day in Pheriche

Hello everyone.

Today we opted to take an additional rest day here in Pheriche.  There’s a cold going around and everyone could benefit from a little more acclimatization.  Most of us went on a hike to stretch our legs and lungs a bit.  It was one of the nicest days in the Khumbu yet, with plenty of sunshine and it was relatively warm today. 

After our hike we relaxed once again in the sunroom and played a bit of cribbage. Currently Travis and Sean are winning, but I think their luck is about to change.  Hopefully tomorrow we’ll hit the trail and head further towards Everest Base Camp.

Clay and I are enjoying your days there vicariously. Photos are amazing, and we are loving having a glimpse of your surroundings. Norm, I’ve been wondering if that K-State cap is keeping your head warm—-or is it just your heart?......:) Stay safe and ENJOY! Judy E.
