Hiking the Himalayas



This weekend was so incredible. I got to hike with some beautiful people through the Himalayan Mountains, seeing spectacular views, culture, and wildlife. We went with our friends Evan + Katie Finley and Caleb + Hannah Showalter, as well as some new friends who are monks from Bhutan, Nepal and Myanmar. There were chai and dahl shops along the way to rest and enjoy the scenery, but the best part was making it to our final destination at snow-line and basking in the views.

I was able to hold a baby goat that was born the night before we arrived.

Our lovely view where we stayed in the¬†Himalayas. Nick and I stayed in the sherpa’s tent but the tents made a nice photo.

I was so fortunate to get to photograph the nomadic goat herders in the middle of the Himalayas. They posed with their goats for a few photos and were so generous with their time to share about their lives.

Sharing a morning cup of chai with our host in the Himalayas. We spent the night under his tent which doubles as his home, shop and kitchen. It was magical.

Our view from one of our hikes to the glacier in the Himalayan Mountains. Once in a lifetime trip. So thankful.
