Descending from Dead Woman's Pass

Descending from Dead Woman’s Pass

Joyfully bounding down hill after two hard days of trekking up nearly four thousand feet to reach Dead Woman’s Pass. Little did I realize that beyond the pass was yet another mountain to climb. When I reached the bottom and saw what was next I surrendered and begged the guide to let us stay the night at camp.

What was beyond.

What was beyond.

  1. One again Emily this is outstanding!
    You do all the hiking and get great photos and tell interesting stories, while I get to sit around in my sweat pants, drink coffee and enjoy the trip. Fantastic! Thanks! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

  2. You are an inspiration!! Your body told you to rest. You shall rest my friend. And then you get up and do it all over again!! Inspiring !!

    • My legs where shaking so bad when I got down the mountain that afternoon. Yes..there is no other way out than on your own two legs. Although a porter was hanging in the background in case he had to carry me. πŸ™‚

    • You made me laugh Leanne. Really hard work is an understatement. lack of sleep, predawn departures, lack of oxygen, and stairs that are true “Gringo killers”.
      But so worth it ! I’m ready to go back and do it again, this time even slower ! LOL!
