I really enjoyed RobSC's Everest Trip Report. I especially found his candor about the impact of his journey on his family quite refreshing. After reading it and enjoying the photos, I wondered if Rob had taken any shots that would lend themselves to annotations. (You know how I am!)

This pic is the first result of our ensuing collaboration. Many thanks to Rob for his willingness to allow me this honor, and to Guenter Seyfferth for his vast knowledge and generosity with his time.

BTW - In this shot, Manaslu is 149 MILES (240km) distant! That's very close to the distance from New York City to Southbridge, MA (to the NE), and from New York City to Bel Air Md (to the SW)!

RobSCGreat Job!


Voted 10/10

Thanks for the kind words. It's really nice to know what I was looking at on those chilly days last May! I had no idea the distances that I could see were so huge.
