SPITI - Blanket of Snow
It was a long cherished dream to visit Spiti at time when its entirely covered by snow. It's no more a dream now. I rode to Spiti Valley in March 2011 and explored a completely different side of majestic valley. The entire region was covered in thick blanket of snow. It's been four days that I've returned to Delhi but my mind refuses to accept the reality.
It still is tangled in the splendid vistas that were a constant companion throughout the ride. Riding was difficult on those terrains, not due to freezing conditions but due to constant urge to click a picture at every inch that I used to cover. The ride lasted six days which is a story of numb fingers, freezing conditions, million cups of tea & unadulterated riding satisfaction.
I thought for a long time before starting this thread to fill it with special title, words & use of high flying sentences, etc. Now I realise that words fall short and nothing can actually bring out what I've actually experienced in six best days of my life. I sould also admit that my ability to write a log is very poor. So this is a very simple & humble effort from my side to share my side of story with my xBhp brethern of the best ride of my life.
Some pics before I actually start writing:

I'll be posting more as soon as I'm done with high volume of pending work in office.
