I took this photo upon entering a beautiful remote village in Nepal, hiking along the Annapurna trek. I love how prayer flags are so symbolic of this part of the world and welcomed you into each village. Under the prayer flags is the bouncy bridge we had to cross in order to enter the town.
After trekking for weeks in the Himalayas we finally came down to a small village where I found this young woman hunched over her loom making handwoven wool scarves. I bought a beautiful wool scarf for US$2 and felt sad. What a way to make a living.
I was working on a post for Jakesprinter’s Sunday post titled “Sunrise” and took a second look at these photos I’d taken at three different times during the same day just after a fresh coat of snow. I thought they were so lovely I had to share. Sunrise Mid-day Late afternoon

This is the long hike down following the mule trains after the pass. Yes, it was exhausting yet exhilarating all the same. The landscape here is so diverse. It is near the remote Mustang area of Nepal and much more barren and brown. I felt like I couldn’t have been further away from civilization than here.
Greetings from the Annapurna Trek…wish you were here! Photo taken just after crossing the highest point of the Annapurna Trek, Thorung La, in Nepal. November 2010. We slept poorly at the rustic tea house before the darning Thorung La pass. It was freezing cold and we wore everything we had underneath two yak-hair blankets. So cold that it was hard to even get up to use the restroom. At 3 am we rose, ate in silence and began our ascent […]
Greetings once again from Nepal…wish you were here! Photo taken somewhere along the Annapurna Trek in Nepal. I know I need to move on to another subject but somehow I can’t. I’m having way too much fun reworking these photos I took during a two week trek along the Annapurnas in Nepal. I promise I’ll pick a new subject soon!
Greetings from Nepal…wish you were here! Photo taken in Manang, Nepal along the Annapurna Trek, the morning after a big snowstorm. November 2010. For some reason, my mind still rests on Nepal and her eternal beauty.
Greetings from Nepal….wish you were here! Photo taken along the Annapurna Trek in Nepal. 2010. Nepal is one of those places that I will never ever forget. It is so breathtakingly beautiful. This photo was taken in Manang, Nepal a lovely village with bakeries and trekkers galore. A place I’d love to go back to someday.
