Our eyes were opened to another world during this trip. To a world of survival, rawness and of having some serious skills. The extreme weather didn't manifest but what I did experienced was enough of a taste to garner an awe inspiring amount of respect for the people. It made me want to go back, with more preparation, to test myself.
Despite locations 1 & 2 being fairly close in distance, it only took 4 days away at 2 to make my return to 1 (a distinctive place in its own right, and a favourite) feel foreign and removed.
Some early shots of location 1.

If it looks like we are in the river, it is because we were.
Taken from vehicle (not driven by us). First of many crossings.
