Comrades, Family & Loved Ones,
We all went to sleep by 8 pm last night after our summit and after a good 10 hours in the sack, we rose early, packed our duffles and descended to our hotel in Terskol.
It was a beautiful, warm and sunny day in the valley so some of us decided to go horseback riding. We had a fabulous celebration dinner tonight. An abundance of Shashlik, 3 different types of veggies, hichin (delicious pancakes stuffed with seasoned potatoes and cheese) and some ponche (doughnut-like pillows of goodness). After dinner, we all needed some ice cream to cap it off. A major feed.
Our local guide Andrei is a talented photographer and he treated us to a slideshow after dinner with his fabulous photos of our climb.
Tomorrow we have a bonus day here in Terskol and we’re all planning to go for a hike.
Thanks for following!
Carole and Vern Tejas
