Sabalan Volcanic Lake

   
Liana at the crater lake of Mount Sabalan, July 2005 

My wife, Liana, made it all the way to the volcanic crater lake on top of Mount Sabalan in July of 2005.

We climbed the mountain together but she sped right past me in one of the middle ridges. We met and climbed the last ridge together.Her stamina and focus on the climb surprised several others who accompanied us.

It was a tough trip starting at 5 am in Ardabil. There was a two hour car ride to the base station and a five hour climb to the summit. The picture, here, was taken at about 12 noon. The climb down the summit took a bit longer than the one up.
