Very cool, and contains a lot to look at.  I am looking at the folds, the height, and then I get the near impenatrability--how did people ever get across.

The Himalayas look all inspiring when viewed from space, but when you get there on the ground it's not at all as inspiring.
The problem is man, where ever he goes so he takes his trash. If we ever go to Mars I can imagine the same will happen.
Take a look at what this person shows on one of his trips to the Himalayas.

When the Sun burps, we get electromagnetic snow. Such is life next to a very large, warm neighbour. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gsfc/11875077585/ …
