As we embark on part two of our journey here are some pictures from the last:

This is Chris doing a headstand. Considering the heaviness of his hiking boots and the crazy wind, I say good form.

 A brave attempt at Bakasana (or Crow Pose). I swear my arms got straighter than that.

 ... and now for something completely different.
