Jamia Masjid Mosque, Srinagar – August 2009

I placed this into a separate entry because I’ve never been inside a Mosque before and the mosque that I choose happens to be the largest in Asia and in the Kashmir (I visited the day before I helped polish off a bottle of whisky…I don’t know what that means).  I was hesitant about entering […]

Leh to Srinagar – August 2009

India is a very godly country with equally ungodly transportation schedules.  While it doesn’t have the crazy early morning departure times of it’s Manali-Leh contemporary, the road through the Kashmir along the Line of Control with Pakistan is about as long and includes it’s very own set of peculiar oddities.  Leaving at a more sane […]

Stok Kangri III

Obvioulsy, no photos exist of the first 5 or six hours of the climb, but this one was taken at around 6:30am.  Base Camp is behind the low cloud formation in the center of the photo.  Our route took us over the glacier in the bottom of the photo and straight up a bowl on […]

The approach was somewhat different than I initially expected.      Camp one – looking north toward Stok Village.     Marmot boxing on the […]

Stok Kangri I – August 2009

6121m above and behind the picturesque village of Stok is Stok Kangri and the main reason I ventured into this part of the world.  I like culture, but I prefer views.  On a good day the summit offers vies of Mt. Kailash in the TAR and K2 in Pakistan. Initially, I was going to attempt […]

Manali to Leh, India – August 2009

Into the Ladakh. Only on the highest highway in the world does ones jeep depart at the silly hour of 2am.  Actually, that is when I arrived at the local bus station.  The ride didn’t actually begin until around 4:30am. Unfortunately, the early morning start meant that I would miss the opportunity to shoot Rohtang […]
