Terrific photo of a place few of us will ever get to! Thanks for sharing this.

Echoing DrFumblefinger's comment: until I saw your picture, and did some research, I never knew this remote area of Nepal existed!

Please tell me you have more ! I've wanted to see, but now never will, the landscape that Peter Matthiessen and George Schaller trekked through to reach Dolpo in 'the snow leopard' 😍

This is the time of year when those of us who love to hike have our eyes gazing to the tops of the mountains, longing to get up to those high passes.  But there's still a lot of snow and ice up there, at least in Western Canada and the Pacific...

Gumbo's Pic of the Day, November 25, 2014: Fall colors at Upper Kananaskis Lake, Alberta

  Fall is a special time of year in the mountains.  While the colors in the Canadian Rockies are not as varied as in eastern North America, it's still very lovely.  Here is some beautiful mountain lake scenery and a surprise...

My Wife - she who must be obeyed - loves a single Kayak and the open sea. So I presume this would be on a lake. Much safer I think. Sounds like you have the perfect location for a wilderness family like ours ! When we camp in summer you'd mistake some of the tents for aircraft hangers. But the kids and babies come too. Canoes and Fishing rods. Wet suits and waders. We go to Shell Island in Wales - but only when the tides out. Need to plan your journey ahead. They only have Grizzly Sheep.

One of the greatest hikes in North America is through the Upper Geyser basin on a nice summer day! Thanks for showing us why.

Well, maybe suggesting rather than showing. Landscape photography is a skill I haven't cultivated but, the fact remains, a remarkable bit of real estate.

Beautiful and unspoilt - is this part of Canada as big as it looks? Do the city folks come here to get back to nature ? Looks like camping heaven - but does it have any wildlife that likes human blood? Could it be too good to be true ? Great pix - worthy of a Gumbo Calendar Dr.Y !!

Hi GarryRF, Yes, this part of the world includes vaste stretches of wilderness. Lots and lots of unspoiled mountains, valleys, forests, rivers and lakes. It is only an hour's drive from west Calgary, so lots of those of us who live here spend our weekends in the Rockies. Much like those in Denver. Camping is wonderful in the summertime, as the weather is mild and the days very long. It's also great to hike here at that time. Camping in the winter is only for the brave of heart. You need to...

Great views, and especially the pictures where the lines of color so clearly mark the changes in altitude and what is growing there...

The road was clearly marked CLOSED If it was my own act of stupidity then I would keep it a secret. Why some folks with 4x4 cars think they can beat the laws of physics I don't know. But thanks for the concern. No one was hurt I believe.
