Spring trekking in the Manaslu region, I awoke to find snow had blanketed the area. Looking up the valley toward Manaslu, I breathed deeply and let myself feel surrounded by the muted quiet of the mountain snowfall. Knowing the porters had cleared the snow off my tent in the night, I put my trust in our guide to decide when to proceed higher.

Location: Manaslu region, Nepal
