Picture of the week 12


This photograph shows the remote Moir campsite as we arrived. The knob on the upper right is the place we hiked to the second day to continue our acclimatization program.

The slog to Moir Camp was my toughest day on the trial.
The Lariam (malaria preventive) side effects had me spooked to the point I thought my guides were conspiring against me. This was, of course, total paranoia on my part as it was, indeed, our guides that gently put me straight.
(If you choose to use a malaria preventive, I recommend staying away from Lariam. This child of the 60’s had never been paranoid any other time. Consult your Doctor)
