Spantik 2012 pics

Postby radson » Sun Aug 26, 2012 2:39 am

Hi Guys,

Greetings from Skardu. Just got around to putting up some pics of what we were doing over August.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/radson/sets/72157631234536408/with/7858094532/

Had an awesome time and the weather was reasonably co-operative but very very deep snow in places.

Thanks Guys,

The TR which may or may not be untitled 'Snow Falling on Sirdars' will be composed as soon as I hit ISB. Currently waiting on a PAF Hercules to pick up us stranded tourists in Skardu.

I soo wanted to catch the Herky Bird but we ended up getting a lame PIA 737. This was still very cool. as we were expecting a 30 hour mini bus ride.
