TR AVEL TIME by DEAN WHITLOCK PHOTOS COURTESY OF A b ove the C louds This story, like most great adventures, starts with a journey—the first of hundreds. In 1972, photographer Steve Conlon visited Nepal to trek the famous Himalaya and meet its people. He returned several times—once for more than five years—became fluent in the language and married Muna Gurung. When he and Muna came to the United States in 1982, with their first child due any day, Steve’s parents urged him to find a more settled career. He met them halfway by founding Above the Clouds, one of the first adventure travel agencies in the country. That was only the beginning of the journey. 4 Summer 2013 / Best of Burlington 65
