Been in Colorado for 13 years and finally rafted the Arkansas through the Royal Gorge. Well, chalk this up to another expensive and somewhat dangerous hobby that's got me hooked. Awesome  day!

A Buddhist monk stands quiet with gain to feed the pigeons in Durbar Square.

There are still signs of the earthquake here with toppled shrines and reconstruction but it is still a beautiful and historic place to visit with a wealth of spirit and history

"Because it's there."
George Mallory's answer when asked why he wanted to climb Mount Everest

Watching reports of the first summits of the season coming in today from Everest. Very happy to see they got a window. I met quite a few climbers at base Camp and along the trail to this behemoth including @project7in4, Steve Plain who set the speed record for the 7 Summits today. Congratulations to all the climbers and get down safe! Maybe someday.

The mountains don't concern themselves with how they can be taller, more striking, more powerful, or better. They just are! Coming from the land of these giants I realize now, I AM THE MOUNTAIN

Due to weather in Lukla we were not able to fly in by plane and experience landing at the most dangerous airport in the world! So we took a helicopter!

“To those who are enthralled by mountains, their wonder is beyond all dispute.
To those who are not, their allure is a kind of madness.
What is this strange force that draws us upwards,
This siren song of the summit?” – Robert MacFarlane, Mountain

Glacier crossing on Island Peak

These natural wonders are disappearing because of global warming and climate change. While trekking along the Khumbu Glacier near Everest I was told it is receding about 15-20 meters per year and Everest Base Camp has lowered 40 meters since Hillary and Tenzing climbed it 55 years ago. It saddens me that these giants are shrinking because of us! Time for a change!
