Caught in a quake and avalanche in Nepal: Surreal and apocalyptic

Two years ago, a group from Southern California headed to Nepal, the gateway to the Himalayas. They were supposed to be there for a month, hiking from one small village to the next. During one lunch, an earthquake suddenly struck, followed by an avalanche. The sherpas with them got injured, and everybody was eventually carried out by helicopter.
