I have now trekked the great ranges on six occasions.

Coming to this part of the world was like meeting friends i had heard much about - the south face of Lhotse, the pass of April 27th, the border of Tibet, the shining wall, Sherpani Col, K2, mountain of mountains...

i've been around dhaulagiri, across to annapurna base camp and then to muktinath (apr/may/june 08).

i've walked the 3 passes of solukhumbhu and out to jiri and visited bhaktapur(dec/jan 09)

i've been around manaslu and into the lamjung himalaya and to langtang valley (dec/jan 10)

i've ridden the karakoram highway and walked the baltoro glacier and back again (aug 11)

i've trekked through the rhododendrons between ghorepani and ghale kharka and the barun glacier to 6000 meters in makalu barun national park (mar/apr/may/jun 13)

I've trekked the Inylchek Glacier to Khan Tengri & back & visited the north side of K2 (Sept/Oct 14)

every time i visit the great mountains, i love them more and more...it is a place where i have never felt more alive.
