Hiking up

Memorial to Scott Fischer

On the way to Lobuche

Lobuche - home sweet home

Up, up & away to Lobuche (4900m). The "che" means village. We climbed out of Dingboche up a really steep hill (I know, I've said it before, but at this altitude it's getting really hard to go up these hills). At the top of the hill are memorials for people who have died. There is a really nice one for Scott Fisher. I decided to build a small memorial for my Dad who passed away 14 years ago. I left a little note for him too, and got totally emotional.

The views are fabulous. These mountains are so majestic. We left "memorial hill" and walked along a glacial moraine up to Lobuche. This outpost is not very attractive. The teahouses are getting rougher and rougher. The rooms are smaller, the toilets are worse, and I'm getting bored with the food. After we checked in the teahouse we hiked up a hill to get a view of Nuptse and the glaciers. We are closer to Everest Base Camp, but can't really see it yet. In spite of feeling like crap, I'm really excited about getting to Base Camp.
