THROUGH A SPIRITUAL LENS

OUT OF THIN AIR

I firmly planted my trekking pole and climbed higher into the Himalayan mountains. It was Day Three of a four-day trek from Ghorepani to Ghandruk, Nepal. My camera swung from its crisscrossed position on my body as my guide and I climbed higher in altitude. But the rocky, slippery, steep trail requred all my concentration, leaving me few opportunities to take in my surroundings.

We eventually crested the peak of Gurung Hill at 3,700 meters (12,139 feet). Suddenly the thin trail opened up into a tremendous view. The glorious peaks and valleys of Nepal were visible all around me!
