Trek for Recovery Team Reaches EBC

Hello Everyone,
I have a couple of photos to share.  Robert and Scott are on there way to attempt Island Peak.  The rest of the team will be hiking down the mountain to Lukla and then enjoy a helicopter ride back to Kathmandu for rest and sightseeing before their trip home to Nebraska.

A text from Robert: "Scott and I are in Dingboche and everyone else is in Pheriche.  Everyone is doing well.  They really enjoyed base camp. It snowed 1-2 inches last night and a little bit this afternoon. We just spoke with an American group who bailed on Island Peak today. They said it was very icy and dangerous.  We are hoping that it will be better in two days when we try it.  I have no interest in taking chances on this peak."
