ABC to Base Camp

On April 27, we hiked back to the lower altitude at base camp to rest and fill our bellies. Later (sometime between May 9 and May 11), we returned to advanced base camp in just one day, rather than two, because by then we were acclimatized. After our summit push, we returned to base camp again before driving out. These photos are from our first hike back to base. I didn't take photos during our final hike out because we were determined to descend quickly.
