Mountains of Gold

July 16, 2016.

We are driving through the high mountains in the upper reaches of the #Kinnaur district in #Himachal Pradesh. There’s a slight drizzle and a very strong wind, both of which are filling my senses with the message that this is what it means to be alive: a bit of a shiver from the cold wind, a tiny bit of fear because we are hanging on to a tiny strip of a road in between jagged edges of rocky mountains, and a whole lot of awe inspired by the landscape – it’s a series of golden mountains unfolding one after the other while the #Spiti keeps undulating like a molten river of silver far down below.
