Viewing Post for: Turkey: Mt. Ararat

Date: DATE: September 11, Wednesday
Location: Yedigoller. 10196 feet at camp.

9 hours hiking, 5500 feet uphill, 2000 feet downhill. Summitted Mt Emler.

Incredible day. So hard to describe the area we are in. All dry and barren. Huge 2000 to 3000 foot cliffs. Jagged, sculpted, pillars, white limestone. All made the summit. Fabulous light as the sun moves through the day. Large quantities of olives, cookies and melon being consumed. Horses carried our gear here. It is a fixed camp meaning set up all wish we could show you view from summit. Very exotic. Not much more input from the hikers as they are all tired.
