Day 6 - Ali and Cat Explore Ahead     Snowy weather closing in

The jet stream blows snow over the top of the Annapurnas. The entire northern mountain face is in shadow, but the windblown snow catches the orange sunset on the opposite side, lighting the ridge-line in an eerie glow, as if the summit of the ice-bound mountain is on fire. The fiery image dies, and curtains of mist swoop as if drawn across a stage. Prayer flags shiver on rooftops, darkness envelops us. Purged, the energy dissipates.
