Viewing Post for: Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon 2014

Date: Thursday, October 2
Location: If we told you the name of this place you would not know it

22 km day, up to 11,500 feet. 11 hours of hiking. Gorgeous sun. Day time 65 nighttime. 40 degrees.

As you can tell from the stats today, long day. Fantastic wooded valley with towering mountains. We got to see our first glaciated peak so we are now sure we are in the Himalayas. Many quite tired today. We ended in a meadow with a view of the peaks around us.

The horses you can see in the picture from breakfast carry our gear. Lunch is a hot meal of rice, green beans, cauliflower, carrots and ginger tea. We are constantly close to the roar of the river these two days. It did not quite drown out the barking dogs in camp during the night. The amazing clear stars helped to make up for that.

Lisa is better today and walking.

Thanks for following us.
