Team settles into Everest Base Camp

Yesterday we arrived at Everest Base Camp!  Walking into camp we had our first good view of the summit (middle photo).  We had our first team meeting at base camp in our Mountain Hardwear Space Station tent (top photo).  We enjoyed a nice dinner then awoke to clear skies today, and organized our gear in camp.  We can look up into the Khumbu Icefall from camp (bottom photo) and view the route we will climb to Camp 1 after a few days here acclimatizing and reviewing climbing techniques.  Everyone is  doing well and we are very excited to be here!
