Ala Archa in Winter

…on a happier note, for Valentine’s Day we skipped the crowds and cafes of the city and headed up to Ala Archa, where it was windy but rather warm and sunny.

Our trip to the near-wilderness was made complete by rolling (and smashing) a giant snowball, drinking tea and weak soup at the Ala Archa guesthouse at the trailhead (where you can stay overnight for a mere $42/dbl provided you reserve ahead), and getting stuck behind steppe ponies on our drive back.
