The Big News From Nepal Is.......
Some of you may have heard already. Many obviously have not. But while standing beneath Mt. Everest at an elevation of 18,500 feet, Helen and I became engaged! Here is a picture of us just moments after we agreed to spend our lives together. That's the summit of Mt. Everest in the background (the smaller looking mountain just above our heads - the larger mountain is closer and is called Nuptse). We are standing near the small settlement of Gorak Shep, and have just descended from Kala Patar. This is not too far from the Everest Base Camp. You can see we had a beautiful day for this.
We are both very happy and appreciate all of of our loving friends and family! We want all of you to know!
Wayne and Helen
