The view from Poon Hill, Nepal

Poon Hill
All the trekkers do it, but it's worth it. Up before dawn, then the brisk climb to the summit and the waiting in the bitter cold for the sunrise. The distinctive mountain on the right is Machapuchare (many variations of the spelling exist).

Wow, what a stunning photo. I love the painting-like quality of it.

This seems an appropriate photo to post today, given the tragedy that has just unfolded on the Southern Crossing.

Arohanui.

Anne-Marie, thanks, and yes, it's a very sad turn of events. I was hoping for the best; that they were just sitting out the bad weather.

Thomas, thank you :^)
