Rest Day at Camp 2

It was especially sunny here on Everest making for a great rest day. After
moving all the way from Base Camp to Camp 2 yesterday the climbers took
maximum advantage of the good weather to rest, relax and lay low. Tomorrow
will be another rest day in Camp 2 with an acclimatization hike thrown in to
stretch the legs a bit.

Jenny and I kept ourselves busy with Base Camp chores like refining radio
communications, sprucing up community tents, organizing our vast supply of
food, and tackling laundry. By the end of the day the sunny weather won out
against our motivation and we participated in some high altitude lounging in
the hammock.
