"Follow The Yak" Photo of the Week 31

2.00

This is the subtledream photo of the week for week #31 (July 31-August 6) of 2017. This is a one of my favorite captures from the Khumbu region/Sagarmartha National Park when I embarked on the Everest Basecamp and 3 Passes Trek in March and April of 2017 for 27 days - no airplanes or donkeys/yaks to carry my load. Just 2 bus rides and my legs! 

My hands and face defrosted just a bit when the first rays of sunlight finally hit the nearly barren earth in front of me. I was on my way up to Gokyo Ri, the popular summit adjacent to the town of Gokyo, when I caught sight of several unleased yaks grazing a couple hundred meters away. I veered off the beaten path and followed the animals for some time, observing and admiring them at first, then positioned myself above a couple to capture this perspective of the thawing lake at the town's edge.
