MacDaddy, at one crazy point in time, dreamed of climbing Everest. We read every book, every account, watched every documentary we could get our hands on. We soon realized we didn't have the money, the commitment, the time, the endurance. Standing on the world's highest mountain was relegated to his 'twas-worth-wishing-about-but-no-chance-in-hell-it's-happening list.
Last week we celebrated Our Thirteenth well above the clouds on a ride across the Himalayan ranges of Nepal. Our fifty-minute mountain flight gave us the chance to stare in awe at eight of the world's highest peaks.
Best of all, with matching goosebumps, we took that one good, solid look at Everest.
