    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. Over my shoulder and up the hill a voice invited me to tea. Sitting on the rocks was a shaggy haired man wrapped in a blanket motioning me to come up and join him. I grabbed my bag and hiked up to his stone shelter and took the hot flower tea that was prepared by his attendant. I smiled and nodded at him also. He pointed at the flowers that the tea was made from.

    The Monch-Switzerland

    My first climb in the Bernese Alps was the Monch (13,448ft). I awoke at 5:30am to catch the 6:25am tram from Murren to Lauterbrunnen. Once down I had to run to the rental car to retrieve my climbing gear and meet Franz and the train to the Jungfraujoch. We chatted and enjoyed the train ride into the interior of the famous Eiger. It was a short snow slog to the Monchhutte from the Jungfraujoch for a quick coffee before beginning the climb. The weather had closed in and it was horrendous with wind, snow and visibility in feet. Franz led the way up a number of easy short rock scrambling pitches before we stopped and put on crampons. As we gained altitude the clouds thinned and the winds stopped.
