Everest Trek, back again

Our trip down was much like our trip up, but shorter since it was more down hill. Though it was a little surprising how much climbing we ended up doing while going "downhill". We had a lot of time to spare since the weather cooperated on the way up. So, we spent an extra day in Pheriche when we woke up to clouds and light snow and spent an extra day around Namche too. Even with the extra days we still made it back to Lukla three days early. Lucky for us, the previous week's bad weather meant most flights were going back to Kathmandu empty and we were able to change our flight without any problems.

Lee, and some yaks that didn't much care much about our picture plans. Fortunately they are photogenic.

The runway in Lukla is kind of like a ramp.

Tomorrow I am planning to head out to trek the Annapurna circuit. I don't expect to make many posts while I am hiking this time either.
