Roof of the World

Mt. Everest. Chomolungma. A most awe-inspiring sight. I doubted I’d ever see it with my own eyes. But the fates cooperated and I did. Though I saw many views of this very top of the world, I like this one for the layers of color. The view is from a pass called, I believe, Jiu La.
