Almost everyone summited Kala Patar just above the small village of Gorak Shep this morning. Only Bill and I stayed back. This is the very last stop on the way to Everest Base Camp. Usually the end of the road for most trekkers in the Khumbu area. Some fresh snow last night but blue skys this morning. Our forecasts look good for the next few days, basically more of the same clear mornings and overcast afternoons. A very normal pattern for this time of the year. So hi from all of us. Tonight Bills group is all in Base Camp, my group will be there tomorrow mid-day! Yahoo, getting closer!
