Hiking and Camping

On Friday afternoon we met with some of Robyn’s friends to travel into the mountains south west of Xi’an to hike and camp overnight.

Green arrow marks our camp site
We set out from a farmer's house at the end of a rough track
Clambering up a ravine
Climbing the watery rocks
All smiles for a while
One of many river crossings
Exhausted we take a break
Finally at camp and a fire is started

The night was cold, the ground sloping, babies cried, owls hooted, adults snored, etc etc.

A fire again in the morning (roast apple in foil)
Down we clamber
Taking a break on the way down
Robyn and Linda trying not to fall in the water
Cooling our heels
