Eric is living his life to the fullest right now, with his team exploring all of our earth's beauty in the mountains bordered by Tibet and Nepal. As of today they are in Tingri and getting ready to climb Cho Oyu.
I wanted to share just a few things that I learned from the EverestNews.com web site.
Cho Oyu, 26,906 feet (8201 meters) - the 6th highest mountain in the world.
Also known as the "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan, it is located at the frontier of Tibet and Nepal. Cho Oyu is part of the Himalayan Range and is 30 km west of Everest. For more info go to MountainGuides.com or EverestNews.com web site.
In addition to all of the summits that Eric has conquered in his life he is living a Gluten Free lifestyle. I am amazed to think of all the details that go into planning such expeditions - it boggles my mind! Just before Eric left he reassured me that he had all of his "Gluten Free Goodies" with him and he was ready for his trip. If Eric can stick to a GF menu while climbing the world's highest mountains then so can you.
Follow Eric's blog while they climb and summit Cho Oyu.

What a great way to celebrate Earth Day or month!
