April 24, 2015- Hike up to Nakarsang Hill

Greetings from the dining room at our tea house in Dingbouche , were it is currently lightly snowing.  It was listed on our itinerary as a rest day.  "Rest day my ass", we went for a little acclimation hike of 2,100 ft. elevation gain.   In the overall picture of our goal of getting us all safely to EBC and back home this is a good thing.  However, while huffing and puffing on the trail, at least I, could think of a better way to spend a rest day.  As we sit in the dining room a few of the members our engaged in a heated card game, while others our reading, as different languages from around the world fill the background sounds. Tomorrow morning we head onward and upward with EBC getting closer with every footstep we take.  Cheers, JR
