Everest Base Camp Trek: Grom & Team Arrive at Everest Base Camp

Hello everybody -
This is Casey calling in from the Everest Base Camp Trek. I just wanted to update everyone and let you know that we had a nice hike today and beautiful weather with fantastic views of Nuptse and Everest and the whole Khumbu Glacier as we headed out of Gorak Shep. We got in about a three hour hike, slightly up hill. We gained about 400 to 500 feet of elevation from Gorak Shep. We slowly made our way along the lateral moraine, so we’re on the trail which basically rides right next to the glacier for about two hours before we drop down on to the Khumbu Glacier itself. We made our way along with all the yaks and other trekkers and climbers into base camp. The team is doing incredibly well. We were thankful to have such nice weather to hike in today.  We got into camp and had a nice big break. We sat down had a big lunch, and then we just spent the remainder of the afternoon just relaxing here in camp. We had a little minor snowstorm come in it just dusted up a little bit, but nothing nothing major. We just wrapped up a big dinner and the team is doing incredibly well and looking forward exploring to a little bit, taking a walk around Base Camp.  Anyway, that’s all for today, and I look forward to seeing some pictures to you guys once we getting back to where will have some wi-fi service and alright. That’s it.
