Clearing storm, Annapurna South

Annapurna storm
March 2007, at Tadapani on the Annapurna trail. The cloud begins to break towards evening, revealing glimpses of Annapurna South, like vignettes from the past. One might imagine the ghosts of long-perished climbers wandering restlessly up there, calling to their families, to their friends, to those who loved them. Do not forget us, they say.

Kia ora Pete,
This call strongly to me. Cheers! Looks like a lovely day to head into the Ruahine, at least from here. Good luck with the Whio count!
