Bowled Over by Bhutan - 2007

Anyway, back to the burro! The next morning after arrival, we three women awoke to

begin the climb to the Tiger’s Nest. Dan had arrived from Tibet feeling a tad under the

weather and had decided to rest at the luxurious Uma Hotel rather than exhaust himself

with the climb. We reached the staging area where the hike itself begins at about 9:30 a.m.

and started out, filled with happy anticipation (Micki) and some anxiety (Kay & Lois anyway).

The way up was steep but the scenery was lovely and we were charmed by the

prayer flags and the prayer waterwheels we passed. However, it became clear pretty

quickly that Kay and I were not enjoying the climb at all.
