The amazing views!

The last step!!! Welcome to Lukla, day 11.

Here is David on the way back from Kala Patthar. Check out the bottom of the Khumbu glacier across the bottom of the picture.



Here we are almost done on day 11!!!! Lukla here we come!


Again day 9, Rabi and David on Kala Patthar. Above Rabi is Mt. Everest and above David is Lhotse.

Oh thank God for mountains! The morning view of Lhotse from Kala Patthar, day 9.

Kelly trying to make it to Dingboche while feeling really sick and cold, day 5.

Nepali squatting on the trail! :-) Good view though!

Here is Kelly again in Namche Bazar at our favorite lodge trying to get warm around the yak shit fire! This is on day 3 after our first shower. We only took two!

Here is Kelly standing above Namche Bazar on day 3.

Here we are on day 10 in Pengboche ready to head down and sadly away from this beautiful view. Behind David is Ama Dablam which means Mother Double in Nepali.

Here is a great view of Mt. Everest which is the small looking one peaking out from behind to the left of the center. The tall one on the right is Lhotse.

This is David climbing part of the steep ups on the first day. It was amazing how the Lord kept us strong and able to keep going up through day 12!

One of about 12 bridges crossing back and forth along the Budh Koshi, meaning milk river because of the color. This was also about how cloudy it was for the first six days.

Still day 1, David posing next to the money rocks. These were all along the path for the first three days and then we saw more prayer flags.

Here we are on day 1. Rabi our guide and David ready to board the plane!
