It's been almost a week since I left the Himalayas. The roughly 120 days I spent there flew by in the blink of an eye but after spending so much time in one place, I grew accustomed to it and the transition back is always difficult. Part of it is processing my experience and missing these beautiful landscapes. 
Returning from a trip, I always receive the same question: how was it? And it is particularly difficult to put an experience into words - even pictures don't do a place justice sometimes. But to everyone that asks, all I can say is that it is a place you should experience once in your lifetime!

This year, I'm thankful to be here. Thanksgiving in the Himalayas consisted of freezing our butts off at 18,000 ft! My time in these mountains is slowly coming to a close and I am grateful for every mile I have left to hike before heading back home.

After backpacking through the Himalayas for the past almost 4 months, I expected the Annapurna region to be a little bit more of the same. But to my surprise, this legendary trail has not disappointed! Easily some of the best hiking through some of the most beautiful terrain I've experienced in my life...

Tent views while trying to stay cozy! As sunny and warm as this picture might seem, it was still soo frigid! It was hard to get up from under my quilt and pack up camp 😬

A beautiful sunset right after we got hit with a small but fierce snow storm that had us lost and wandering on the side of this ridge. The clouds parted just long enough to provide this beautiful alpenglow on Machhapuchhare. The following night was the coldest we've had on this trip so far! ❄️

Walking in the shadow of the sacred and unclimbed Machhapuchhare (aka Fishtail Peak). #thriveoutside #nepal #himalayas #gearcooper #getolympus #nepal8thwonder #himalayan_high #hikingtheglobe

Happy Birthday to my partner in crime, my best friend, who traveled to the other side of the world to hike through the roof of the world with me. This adventure wouldn't be the same without you @euphoriabum. 🎂🎉

Hiking at 18,000 feet, the landscape takes on a different form. It feels desolate and otherworldly. But even so, life still flourishes here. Fields of flowers bloom on the mountainsides and I was even amazed to see Yaks grazing this high up!

The tops of passes and peaks are covered in prayer flags, where they flutter in the wind releasing silent prayers into the air. They are also meant to provide safety and appease the gods that might be found in these sacred places. ⛰️🙏

One of my favorite sections of trail so far was during this day when we walked along a ridge overlooking this dramatic peak and turquoise lake below us. Not pictured to our left was a big wide open space with scenic views of Ama Dablam, all the way to Mt. Everest!

The Himalayas have been challenging and beautiful. The terrain is steep and the air thin. The mornings are sunny and clear, while the afternoons bring in clouds and a promise of rain and snow - cutting our days short. Yet we've managed to hike over 200 miles in this rugged terrain. We've crossed multiple passes over 18,000 ft and spent a week long over 5,000 meters. Even at these dizzying heights, the mountain peaks still look down on us, challenging us to climb higher.

The enormity of this landscape is inconceivable to my tiny mind. To say that my body and mind has been expanded by this land is a severe understatement.

After spending the past week and a half trudging through the lower Himalayan Valleys, we finally made it to the Everest region! The trail winding up and down the lower valleys has been challenging - we've dealt with heavy rain, leeches, frigid temperatures, high passes, and endless elevation gain and loss, but the scenery has been spectacular and we've learned a lot about the incredible people that call these mountains home. Now the tallest mountains in the world lie ahead!

After being in Nepal for three weeks now - waiting, preparing, taking in the country and culture - I finally got to lay my eyes on the Himalaya for the first time this morning. Words can't even begin to describe 😍. Monsoon season is coming to an end and the mountains are calling!
