Donna Mccollum climbing update #1
April 5, 2011
Last Saturday Donna was at Namche (11,000') until Monday, April 4th. "We trekked here seven hours yesterday. The last four uphill. I am doing extremely well and am having no issues. We took an acclimation hike today and I saw my first glimpse of Everest which brought me to tears. I am on an incredibe journey and am so happy to be sharing it with you. I love you all. Tomorrow will be a very strenuous uphill, seven hour day to the village of Deboche. Today we went for a 1200' uphill acclimation climb which went great. My knees are not liking the downhills but Tiger's Balm is taking care of that problem!"
