Viewing Post for: Turkey: Mt. Ararat

Date: September 10
Location: Sokulupinar camp, 6363 feet.

6 hours walking. Up 2500, down 1500 feet. 70 degree high, 45 low. Bright sun and amazing stars and Mars was so bright.

Beautiful walk deeper into the mountains. Did not see anyone else all day. Nicknames are developing,. We have the three fossils, more names tomorrow. Stuffed grape leaves at lunch as part of the meal. Many enjoyed the 800 foot scree field, two steps up, slip back one. We can't print some of those quotes at that moment. Had time to do laundry and shower. Water a bit icy. Login camp life. Thanks for the messages. We read them under a goat hair tent at night.

Am enjoying the vicarious experience. Meant to suggest, David, that you take the rocks out of your pack. They were only for training hikes. With envy, Your personal trainer

Looks like you had some problems at JFK, but glad you are there safe and sound. Today sounds great 2500 up and 1500 feet down. I get to visit all these places through you and your pictures can't wait to see them.

Thanks for wracking up some great stories so I can live vicariously! Try to save some energy so you can dine and dance with us at the farm on Sept 28th. Bring pictures :) Leave the goat hair there...
