Feeling small

Nadios cycling in the grand landscape of Eastern Nyainqentanglha Shan in east Tibet. The road, the so called "Yunnan Highway" offers over a dozen passes over 4000m and there's never a flat meter. The mountains along the route are up to 7700m (Namche Barwa) and the road sometimes drops to 1900m. Everything in this area is vertical.

Where the photo is shot the road is at an elevation of about 3000m and the surrounding mountains are close to 7000m.

Re: Freedom emanates...

YES!
That IS freedom!
To ride, to climb, to do whatever you want in splendid surroundings and no day is the same as any other.
It's...life as I want to live it!
