This was taken in Yunnan Province, China. I was in a group trekking to the view deck of Meili Snow Mountain. We were walking for 2 days through a forest, mountain along Mekong River, a couple of villages, and when we finally got there, we had to climb some more! I was already dying and in tears. Luckily, I found my adventure partner! :-)
