Today we saw Mount Everest. It had rained overnight, calming all the dust, which made for clear air and blue skies. We crawled out of our sleeping bags at 5:30am to scarf down breakfast and get on the trail. We took a very nice day hike to an Everest viewpoint. On the way up, there were a few inches of snow on the trail, which were melted by the time we came back down. Good thing we had the snowball fight on the way up! The mountains are so tall, it is hard to watch the trail and take in the mountain scenery without tripping over the rocks! We saw a number of peaks including: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku,Kongde, Tauche, Cholache and many more.
