Steve Watkins sat in ..., 26 April 2015 [cached]
Steve Watkins sat in his tent on Mt Everest, more than 600m above base camp.
He and other members of a team with New Zealand-based Adventure Consultants had spent the night at the mountain's Camp 1.
Watkins, 38, could barely stand as the ground jumped. Then Gissurardottir, standing next to him, spotted a wall of snow and ice barrelling their way. This was a minor avalanche, of the sort that Nepali guides often saw. But to Watkins, it looked like something out of a Hollywood movie.
He ran to his tent, convinced he was in his final moments, muttering what he feared were his final thoughts to any higher power that was with him high on the mountain.
Watkins grew up in Topeka, Kansas, dreaming of adventures. A West Point graduate, he served in Afghanistan with the US Army and then spent a dozen or so years bouncing around war zones as a civilian contractor. The danger was intoxicating. But the memories of death and destruction stuck with him, too, and Watkins says he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder in 2005. He eventually moved to Alaska and the previous month had completed the 1610km-long Iditarod dog sled race.
Up on Camp 1, Watkins could hear bits of ice and snow pelting his tent.
Up at Camp 1, Watkins listened to radio transmissions from the valley below, the crackling filled with gruesome updates. His team's base camp was among the hardest hit.
Watkins walked over to his team camp with Adventure Consultants. Six of the company's Nepali guides had been killed by the avalanche. Seven more were among the injured. Watkins and others excavated the ruins with ice axes and shovels, stopping as aftershocks rumbled the glacier.

The river flow will probably be between 1,800 and 2,000 cubic feet per second through the summer, said Lost Creek assistant operations manager Steve Watkins, of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency that regulates the river's flow from Lost Creek Lake.
"We were able to fill both reservoirs by the first of May, unlike last year," he said."The rafters will see normal flows in the river and the lake users will see better lake conditions than last year."
Watkins said last year the Corps dipped into the reserve to sustain flows and drew the lakes down.
Although hydrologists haven't yet released the specific water flow plans for the summer, he said he doesn't anticipate dipping into reserves this year.
"This year at Lost Creek the boat ramps will be in service much longer than they were last year," he said.
Watkins said they try to maintain a healthy water temperature for fish.
"Our releases are primarily for the fisheries," he said.
