Off on the trail again...

Leh, India

I depart early tomorrow morning for another trek across Ladakh, Karnak,and bordering Zanskar. If all goes well, I'll arrive about 200 Miles south of here along the highway where I will hitch a ride to Manali. I should arrive there on June 19th or 20th. We'll be setting off with three ponies, a couple tents, a stove, kitchen utensils, and food for three men for twelve days. We'll walk the first six days of the classic Markha Valley trek, and then we'll cut up a remote valley near Kang Yantze/Nimaling to meet up with another trail across the Karnak region. There are virtually no permanent settlements across Karnak, only the occasional nomadic group. I'll report my misadventures and hallucinations in a couple of weeks. Until then, keep the peace.

We are two siblings from Colorado (aged 24 and 26) who find ourselves simultaneously between a job and a graduate school program. We both came down with a case of itchy feet, so we're going searching for the cure while we've got the chance!
