Everest Base Camp
My first good view of Everest on the trail to Gorek Shep and Everest Base Camp - Nuptse is in the foreground. Although it is the highest mountain in the world, it is actually almost impossible to see all of Everest from the Nepali side.
The town of Gorek Shep where we will spend the night. On the left, the rocky mountain is Kala Pattar (18,423 feet) which we will summit tomorrow morning. Further down the valley, our destination, Everest Base Camp.
Everest Base Camp! The Khumbu Icefall is clearly visible - the route up Everest for the climbers is right in the middle of the picture just to the left of rocky formation covered in cloud.
Collecting EEG data at Everest Base Camp. As far as I know, the highest ever event-related potential study ever conducted - 17,388 feet.
