The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team has arrived at Annapurna Base Camp! After several days of being delayed due to weather, the team laced up their shoes and hit the trail once again. Today’s push led the team through a deep valley with spectacular views in every direction. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this brief dispatch from Annapurna Base Camp:

We had a beautiful hike to base camp (4130m/13,549ft) through the scenic Mistri Khola gorge, with waterfalls and views of Tilicho Peak (7134m/23,406ft) and Nilgiri (7061m/23,166ft). Now we are getting settled and looking forward to a rest day tomorrow. All is well and we’ll be in touch tomorrow.
