    Asia

    The hike to Vasundhara falls was only another five miles but after the long trek earlier that morning I was moving slowly and tired. Arriving, I dropped my pack and sat in the dirt exhausted.

I had flight reservations for Kathmandu, Nepal on Cathay Pacific Airlines out of San Francisco but found myself in Palm Springs during an extreme windstorm. All flights had been canceled during the afternoon except mine which was able to land in a very short window of semi calm when the winds were not ripping the palm trees to shreds.
