Above it All

The View from Everest. Be sure and pan across the whole wide image. Man, it makes me dizzy (not to mention COLD!)

Interesting that view came up when it did, and I did one of my rare browsings on your blog tonight. I'm a friend of travelertrish, and she told me a while ago to check in with you from time to time. Last night a friend told me his sisters ashes and some poems members of their family wrote at the time of her recent death had been put on the top of Mount Everest by an organization of handicapped folks who climb that mountain. Bret's sister had spent her life in her bed, unable to talk or to roam the world. Someone in that group heard about her and thought it might be nice for someone who had spent their life in her room to spend eternity at the top of the world. It was nice to see what that looks like. I'll point Bret to your cite next time I see him.
