At The Top 2

    We hung around at the top for a while, to catch our breath and drink some water.

Come to think of it, tea would also have been good!

We weren't the only ones at the top.

There was a little store at the top, but we were anxious to be on our way down.

Another beautiful view from the top. Note that even though the visibility is very good, the all-pervasive Asian haze can be seen in the background. The regional nature of this haze needs to be further documented.
