Going Up

lakes and rivers

The Crowes are really getting into the wilds of Tibet, and it's pictures like this which really pique my jealousy. Bob says of this:
A lot of our drive Sunday was through river valleys, one of which was dammed to make an eerie teal-colored lake.

We stopped at passes of 15,000 and 15,800 feet. We're sleeping to ight at 12,800. Doing pretty well with the altitude - fair amount of trouble sleeping but lungs and energy are okay.

PASSES of 15K feet! I've never been above 14-something (aside from in a plane) and that's standing on top of a peak. Anyway, here is the menu at a restaurant where the butter nun was skipped in favor of a yakburger and fries:

I'll believe the yak burger story when I see it with my own eyes. And as for that lake.... I'm thinking B &C have jetted off to Mars! Wait, Mars has no water, right?

One yak, given the size of the Tibetan ones, must make one heck of a lot of yakburgers.

That view of the lake, mountains is beyond words.
