G’day, mates!
This has nothing at all to do with woodworking, but this is so beautiful I felt like sharing it with the 115,000 Lumberjocks here and most of us will never get near Mt Everest.
Now you can say you’ve been there….......kinda…........ Well you’ve seen it up close.
Enjoy…............Cheers, Jim

Teton Gravity Research released the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced-gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. It was filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.

DKV, who made the quarks? Jim, thank you for the view and there were lots of trees and there had to
be lots of woodworking in those buildings. Thank you for sharing.

Amazing, the contrast from the opening scenes to the mountains tells you that Man is just a parasite on the face of the Earth.

Joe, you’re not right often but in this case you are. I am part of the earth killing virus just as you and all other humans are. I’m glad you understand…
