Road Trip

A series of photos taken in a pass in between Jalalabad and Kabul. Several factors made this an interesting ride:

The road is set for one direction of travel for a number of hours.

The guard rail is made of mortared stone at the edge of the road, and there isn’t a shoulder. Just a couple hundred meters of steep slope.

Occasionally people with AKs, DShKs, and RPGs enjoyed shooting down onto your vehicle. Watching for them keeps things interesting.

Sections of road and “guard rail” that have slid down the mountain.

Falling boulders.
