The first view as we flew in, way over the clouds. A promise of things to come.

An ancient valley. Snow streams still flowing in.

Cant believe the green! Vegetation amongst the brown, snow covered peaks.

Beautiful criss cross patterns. The snow. The mountain. The clouds. And the blue blue sky.

A completely different world

The snow clad mountains, give way to dry brown peaks

The folds of the mountains tell a tale. A story of ancient times. When the world was still forming. A tale of creation. When plates moved around, the earth’s crust folded, gave way, converged, and took the shape of these beautiful mountains. Flying over them, it’s almost like being transported to primeval times. Witnessing evolution.
