Qilian Mountain, China
I’ve been in China almost a week now and finally got a chance to sit down and work on some of the many photos I’ve taken already. (Too many hours traveling by bus plane and train with early wake-up calls, nights of four hours sleep, and full schedules each day to get to it sooner.)
This photo from earlier today was taken at 14,300 feet at the base of the July 1, 1971 glacier on Qilian Mountain. (Yes that’s the glacier’s real name.) It was a pretty easy hike, if you can call walking at that altitude for any distance easy, as we started at 12,800 feet.
