Four Hundred Thousand

by backpackingbongos

Some time today the blog ticked over the 400,000th page view.  That lucky person can claim a free kiss from Reuben the Mountain Staffy if they wish.  I must warn you that he uses his tongue.

In celebration here is a 2004 photo of my now wife and I on the Summit of the Stok La pass in Ladakh (India).  Getting up there is still my biggest achievement in terms of hiking.  At 4,900 metres (16,076 feet) it is a hundred metres higher than Mont Blanc. Breathtaking in just about every way.  A shame about the daft head attire and facial expression though!
