Young idealists.

After May Day ion Kathmandu I went to the mountains. The Zorral (mountain goat) is protected animal in Sagamartha National Park.

Damien & Willi Benegas, Cory Richards and radish @ Everest Base Camp. At 17,500 feet air is thin.

Dave Hahn and I climbed Everest in 99. He summited # 12 this season. Way to go Dave!

Russell Brice & Passang Tenjing Sherpa at Base Camp. Russell is the moving force behind HimEx, an Everest guiding concern and Passang is my friend from the Khumbu Climbing Center who helped with the Extreme Ice Survey.

Passang, Adam LeWinter, Cory Richards and me set up time lapse cameras to monitor glaciers in the Mount Everest region. We also compared images from 50 years ago. Guess what? The glaciers are melting.

The edge of the Nare Glacier near Mingbo Pass. Looking at the glacier polish of recently exposed rock was awesome. Smooth as a mirror.
