The content on Flickr, the excellent image sharing site, is getting more impressive by the day. Last night I found this old photograph of Australian Carol Matthews and Californian Curt Gibbs on Poon Hill in Nepal while looking for images of the Annapurna range in the Himalayas.

It is part of a set taken from the early days of the hippy trail (also have a peek at this picture from a party in Kashmir in 1975). The caption on the image above reads “For many travellers Nepal was considered the end of the road, a paradise where the Himalayas meet the heavens.” Which I think is very sweet.
