Tibetan Landscapes, 2006:
A few days ago, I loaned some of my most prized backpacking gear to a friend who is going on a backpacking mission trip similar in nature to one which I went on immediately after graduating from college. All weekend I’ve been reminiscing about that amazing, challenging, eye-opening, heart-changing month or so spent travelling the Tibetan Plateau and sharing the Gospel with a people group who had previously never heard of Jesus Christ.
For today, I’m sharing some photos of the incredible scenery of the Tibetan Plateau. Looking through the dozen rolls of film that I took back in summer of 2006, I see a number of places that I would love to visit again and just have time to explore. So many places there felt so expansive and lonely, an incredible setting for an amazing culture and way of life. I love that land, and though I’ve had the opportunity to return and visit more populated areas of that nation, I think my heart will always long to return to those wide open spaces.
Tomorrow I’ll post some photos of the people who inhabit this region.
