View from Gokyo Ri

Greetings from Lincoln Nebraska! This is Maggie…. Scott is having difficulty posting his blog at this time so I am helping the poor trekker out.

The picture attached is the view from summit of Gokyo Ri (Ri  translates to “peak”) which he climbed yesterday.  Scott said four of  six highest mountains in the  world are visible from here.  Mt Everest is the one with snowing coming off the top.  They continued trekking to the village of  Dragnag (I wonder what THAT translates to…)

Tomorrow will be close to a ten hour trek over Cho La pass (about 18,000 ft) to Lobuche.  Scott is hiring a porter to help him carry his stuff so he’s not constantly eating Robert’s dust/snow.

Scott is hoping to blog from Lobuche since that village is on the main road up to base camp.  He’s in great spirits and is dreaming of salads and grilled fish.
