A narrow trail weaves through a cluster of pine tree somewhere in Uttarakhand.
The jungles of Uttarakhand are replete with Pine forests. The great thing about these Pine forests is that there is little under growth and its easy to wander around without struggling with the underbrush. I particularly love lying on my back in the grass and watch the sun filter though the leaves. The bad part is that the Pine trees do not let other vegetation grow below them. The Pine needles also hinder ground water recharge and more inflammable than other leaves.
This picture was taken on my bike ride to the Darma Valley to see the magnificent Panchachuli peaks. It was late morning and tired from riding all morning, I lay down in the sun ‘n shade looking up. Pretty soon I was asleep.
