Day 8 – Clean

Up at 6:50 and did all the usual morning stuff.  Getting much more efficient at everything – except the sleeping bag.

We were riding by 9:30am.

Early in the morning we came across a herder who obviously needed our help getting his cows and yaks where they needed to be.  At least it felt like we were helping.

Mid-morning snack break.  The guys were very good at relaxing and chatting.

Another bridge too cross – not every horse was willing.

We made it to camp and discovered rhubarb and that our tents needed to be set up.

It was a short morning ride and intern Larry just didn’t have time.  After we set up camp we had lunch and then we were off to the hot baths.

The hot baths were amazing.  For the first time in many days I had all the pollen off me and I could almost breath clearly and I had clean hair!

After we were all clean we returned to camp, had dinner, and then those that wanted went for an evening ride (or as I call it a fresh coat of pollen.)

Back to camp and to bed about 10p.
