Message from Ms. Pachon

Hello Mt. Everest Community!

As some of you may know, I’ll be gone next year to travel in Southeast Asia. We’ll be keeping a blog of what we’re up to in case you’re interested. We’re just getting started, so there isn’t much there yet, but once we get there, we will try to update often.

We plan on working with animals for a big chunk of the time we are there, and are hoping to get some good photos of things we see and describe what it’s like to be there. We also have an Instagram with the same name.

I’ll see you all when I get back in 2019! I’ll miss Mount Everest, and will be taking a picture of the real Mount Everest while I’m in Nepal to send you all.

Have a great summer!

Ms. Pachon
