Today was our most difficult and longest hiking day yet. It took us 10 hours to hike 11 miles. The terrane was very difficult today. We climbed up and over camels hump. It was very steep, and in many places pretty dangerous. I was a bit shocked. We had to constantly throw our hiking poles ahead to use both hands to climb the rocks. We helped push and pull each other along in spots. Pictures don't do it justice, and I couldn't get photos of the most difficult parts because I needed to hold on. I really hope we don't see much more difficulty ahead.
