Travel Photo of the Week – Himalayan Chaps
Trekking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal was one of those mind blowing adventures that I look back on and forget about all of the struggles that it took me to get there. Every memory of that adventure is sweet – even though I know that I had a rough time with the altitude and who could forget all of the yak dung burning stoves! I still am just amazed by the beauty of the area and the awe inspiring experience!
After trekking for several days through small villages and constantly surrounded by clouds, I woke up one morning to partial sunshine and the realization that I was surrounded by some of the largest peaks in the world. It was such a spectacular view and really just made me feel so lucky to even be there to see these stunning mountains. I came across these two fellows during my trekking later on that day and just found the backdrop so brilliant. Even when I look at this photo now I am just blown away by the magnitude of the Himalayas. Looks like these two chaps were planning on lighting a bonfire – maybe to cook up some yaks or just to keep warm – who knows! I wish I would’ve stopped to ask! Maybe we could’ve shared s’mores!
