These are my favorite type of pictures on SP. Actually seeing the route and the camps make it so much more real. Kudos

Re: Great

Thanks very much. I must confess that I have no personal knowledge of this route, and it is not on my tick list!

However, this is an old SP v1 upload, so one thing I'll do "one of these days", is to rescan it and post a much better image.
