Hard at Work in the Himalayas

I took this photo on the 30th day (of 35) of my Everest Base Camp trek in November and December of 2011. The Nepali people who live in the Himalayas don't have roads, motorcycles, or cars, and so everything that is moved around the region is done on the backs of people or pack animals. Shown here are two Nepali women with the traditional baskets used by the people of the area to move everything from food to furniture.
