Good to see that your telelens still worked great to get those bokeh shots of the flowers.
Thank you. Actually, Kas was in mind for last two years but some how missed due to time constraints. I made it a point to visit this year and did that. Keeping finger crossed till October 3 and expecting some good news for putting teles to work.

Regards,
Thank you. Due to delayed monsoon, end-Oct should not be a problem. I did the same thing (one day off) and left on Saturday after a morning visit. However, better to visit little early instead end Oct. Again, i will be visiting for my kids, as they are my travel partners too.

Wow, we were also there on the same day, (GJ registered) white Spark and a red Fabia. Reached Kaas in the morning part and moved on by 12:30 noon.

Hey, that's intresting! So we were both at the plateau at the exact same time. I typically keep an eye on TBHP stickered vehicles. Have to put on stickers on my car as well soon.

Hope to bump into you sooner than later.
