Scott Parazynski Everest Update 28 March 2008, OnOrbit.com

"This morning I arose at 0530 to climb up to a high point above the village, where I saw Everest for the first time --- the sun rising dramatically from behind it. Huge swirling clouds over it and Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world, showed the power of the jet stream at those altitudes."
