sanDRina and I near the Tangala Pass at 5,350 m (17,548 ft). We did it! We rode the Manali-Leh Highway and journeyed through the high Himalayas. It was an epic four days of climbing up and down high passes, brushing up against endless snow banks, chugging through mud and marveling at the beauty of grand nature. The change from the wet side of the Himalayas into the drier side was quite dramatic, especially as the sky was a surreal deep blue, all the way to the horizon. It was very distracting to be looking from one amazing view to another while paying attention to the changing road conditions. sanDRina performed like a champ and she's actually running better at these high altitudes than down on the plains. I think she wants to stay here...
