This week three years back, i backpacked up the highest mountain in the contiguousunitedstates - mtwhitney at 14,505 ft. The 22-mile hike was somewhat strenuous with 6145 ft elevation gain. However, we decided to backpack it over three days and had a very pleasant time. Well, sort of, because while descending, i suffered from what i now know as monkeybutt ! And it made every step super painful . whitney hike was also notable for one more reason- we had to pack our own 💩. Yes, two days worth of it, in poop bags developed by NASA. At higher elevations, there is little topsoil to decompose things and this is the easiest (and the grossest for the hiker) way to keep the mountain clean. The landscapes were incredibly beautiful, but I didnt want to slow down by taking a lot of pictures. The sketch- inkandwatercolor on a 4" x 6" stillmanandbirn sketchbook

Happy independenceday, 🇮🇳 ! In the west, India 's independence is often thought as a nonviolent one with a relatively 'smooth' transfer, thanks to mahatmagandhi So it was a pleasant surprise to see a series of posters on netaji subhaschandrabose at norlinlibrary in cuboulder . In fact, retired CU Prof Joyce Lebra (featured in the posters) is an authority on the Indo-Japanese alliance during the WWII and the resultant Indian National Army, and has written books on the subject. Its important to know/ remember that someone offered to shed "blood, toil, tears, and sweat" against Churchill as Churchill did against Hitler, and for similar reasons.

hiking to torna fort in autumn 2009 amidst a sea of wildflowers . With @kiransalastekar . My home state maharashtra is blessed with more than 350 of these old forts . Hiking all of them is culturally akin to climbing all colorado 14ers. There is ambiguity on who built torna or when it was built, but what is known is that shivajimaharaj captured it in 1643 from nizamshahi sultanate at the age of 16! killetorna trek trekking westernghats sahyadri mountains india
