I was very eager to descend from the summit of Ghobi to the Caspian Sea side. When we saw the long way that we had to hike, the many peaks that were on our way and the fog filled valleys below where we could get lost, we satrted to have second thoghts but I am very glad that we did go ahead with the descent. Going from 14500 feet to sea level, the alpine scenery, the beautiful forests, getting lost in fog, becoming soaking wet, sinking in mud...was a great adventure.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
