Very different from where I am now

I'm in a hot crowded and polluted city (Mumbai) at this moment, but I thought I should post at least one more pretty picture from my little adventure a few weeks back.

In India

It feels like I took off yesterday and arrived last night, but it's been two days since I left the US. Right now I'm in Mumbai, later today I'm flying to Aurungabad and tomorrow we will be off to Hazoor Sahib.
I flew from Albuquerque to Chicago, then Chicago to Paris, then Paris to Mumbai. Chicago to Paris, wasn't a full flight so I had two seats to myself which was nice. The India flight was pretty full. I watched the movie "Jab we met." I thought it was pretty bad actually. I couldn't relate or really respect any of the people's actions. Any way I got to the hotel and meditated then slept. Then I woke up meditated again, checked out and am now at an internet cafe before I fly to Aurangabad. I bought a cell phone and minutes so if you're in India and reading this, then email me,, and I'll send you my number.
I hope to follow this post soon with pictures.

At least a couple photos

I wanted to put up at least a couple photos from our scenic train ride a couple weeks ago.
This is the scenic Cumbres and Toltec railroad which starts in the village of Chama in Northern New Mexico and goes into Southern Colorado and back.

Let me know

If anybody reading this blog is planning to be in Hazoor Sahib in the next week or so, please let me know, it would be awesome to meet up.


I think I look like a hermit in this photo.

Rest of my Mt. Blanca pictures

The rest of my pictures from my hike to Mt. Blanca are in my flickr account.
Hari Darshan Kaur Ji, looking at the valley 6,000 feet below, which was our starting point that day.
In the top left you can see the mountain that we were looking up at when we started our hike. It now looks like a dwarf.

I'm thinking:
"How long is it going to take me to get these photos on my blog?"
Also I'm thinking:

Going to India - Hazoor Sahib

In two weeks from today October 22, I'm going to India for a whole month. I'm first going to Hazoor Sahib for the BIG event! Then I'll mostly be in Punjab. I feel very blessed and am getting excited for the trip. If you are from India and read my blog, let me know, maybe we can meet :-)

Treading up the mountain

The various colors of the water was cool.
Closer view of some of the colors.
We were getting pretty far up there. We had come a long long way at this point.
We still had a ways to go though.
Getting near the top, we could see the view on the other side of the mountains.

continuing with my pictures from Mt. Blanca hike

I have some great pictures from this weekend which I'd love to share, but I need to organize them and upload them. In the mean time I'll keep posting my pictures from when we hiked Mt. Blanca.
Somehow this waterfall still looks smaller than it is in this picture.
Gurprakash Singh Ji in the mountains.
Me posing - haha
Clean mountain spring water for free :-)
Making our way up the mountain.

Continued journey

I have other pictures to post, but I don't have them organized yet, so for now, I'm continuing with my journey up another mountain :-)
I liked the reflections in this picture.
The peak in the distance is another 14er next to the one we did. The one we did still isn't yet visible from this point, this is about half way through the hike.
Cool waterfall.
Getting closer to it.
