Day 45, May 10 (Trekking
Group Dispatch): This is Casey Henley reporting from the Mountain Madness base
camp here at Mount Everest! The second group of trekkers has arrived at B.C.
and are in great spirits. Everyone successfully climbed 18,300 ft. (5550 m.)
Kala Patar yesterday and got great views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and the
other surrounding peaks. The climbers are preparing for their final summit
push and the trekkers are enjoying meeting and spending time with them. The
climbers, in turn, are enjoying meeting and talking with some fresh
faces! Tomorrow we will walk to the edge of the famous Khumbu Icefall and do a
little lesson on mountain features, glaciology and just talk some about
climbing. This will be the high point of the trip for the trekkers. In two
days time we will be starting our return trip to Kathmandu via the incredible
villages of the Everest region. We will leave the high alpine regions and
slowly descend to the warmer, green river valleys. Congratulations to Warren
McInteer, Anne Music and the father/son team, Ricardo and Giuliano DeMarchi
for following their dreams and doing one of the trips of a lifetime! Good luck
to the climbers.
