Sunrise shot of the valley north of Kabul with view facing toward Hindu Kush range. Lush green farms after a particularly cold and wet winter. Rotary flight to Kabul this morning, one of my last trips before I demob at the end of the month. The things I have seen and the friends I have made, it has been an unbelievable experience with many highs and many lows, not much in between. One of the few landscape images I am able to post with most of my time either spent either inside the wire, armored vehicle, C130 transport, or here in a helicopter. Unlike soldiers who work out there, the majority of contractors are tightly managed and kept in a protective bubble.
