Proof that I didn't lie about the altitude!
All those little dots in the snow you see there are alpine flowers in bloom! It would have been stunning on a sunny day (he repeats pitifully). We were lucky to be there at all!
And finally a buttercup.
All this well above 16,000': Incredibly, none of 20 of us seemed to have any symptoms of altitude sickness. The trip I'll be leading to Sichuan this coming year won't be nearly this high (and isn't apt to have snow) but it's fun to look back at my last high foray into the Himalaya and hope you will join me for the next: Click on this link: Sichuan in 2020 and scroll down to the description of the trip. Better yet, sign up: I've taken many trips too many places--but the Chinese Himalaya have been summit experiences in every sense of the word! I know you'll love it!
