Ended up being 980 or so photos that I took during the Pamirs trip last week, and don’t you worry your pretty little selves, they will be shared on here. Well, not all of them, but you’ll get the idea. To get us in the mood, take a look at the photo to the left. This was an inscription painted outside an Ismaili shrine outside of the village of Langar, which the last settlement on the eastern side of the Wakhan Valley in the Tajik Pamirs. If you can’t read Farsi, here’s the English translation:
The greatest sin is fear.
I thought that was good, and it was something I kept in mind when I was hiking on inclines at altitude.
And I’ll share one other photo. I had Asal, my traveling companion for the Pamirs trip, take lots of pictures of me in what I imagined were dashing poses. Many weren’t. But that doesn’t mean I can’t show one such photo here.
Cool petroglyphs, huh? They range in age from the Bronze Age to about last year. More soon of the ‘glyphs and the Pamirs.
