I accidentally deleted a picture and then couldn't get it back into the last post, so one more...
Gathering stones at the river at base camp. (Cheap souveniers.)
This camp was originally chosen because it had springs for fresh water.
Our dinner that night...cucumbers and cup noodles. They sell food in the tents, but it didn't look good and is outrageously expensive since it's your only option if you don't bring it yourself. We were happy we had our cup noodles.
Inside the tent where we stayed at base camp. The guy to the left is fueling the fire for heat and his dinner with animal poop chips. The little guy on the right is his younger brother. They stay up here from May-October, then it gets too cold and they go back to their village. The little guy is just visiting until school starts again for him.
Our early to bed camper.
