Tengboche to Dingboche

After descending from Tengboche and crossing the river, we headed up the valley toward Dingboche. At some point along the trail this day, we made it above timberline, and would see no more vegetation higher than a bush for about two weeks. As we picked up elevation, we could look back and see Tengboche perched on top of the ridge behind us. Ahead was the ridge between Lhotse and Nuptse, with Everest peeking above, a stream of clouds and snow blowing off the summit.
