Camp 2 on the South Col Route on Everest sits on the moraine above the Western Cwm at approximately 21,500 feet. The Lhotse face, the next big obstacle on the way to the top of the world, looms in the background.

Margo with footprints trailing into the distance. Though I missed the summit of Chulu West, my soul sang just to be in the glory of the Himal.
