The downhill run.  by leananiemand

The downhill run.

I flew the 20 km downhill to Ranau, all I needed was a red suit and I could’ve been superwoman!! I swept past small settlements clinging precariously to the mountainside, each house with its own piece of land forming an interesting patchwork of lines and colours. The jagged peaks of Mt Kinabalu slowly disappeared in the distance. And that was the end of the downhill. Soon the road started snaking up yet another mountain and it continued in that manner for the rest of the day. There is not much one can do but put your head down and get it over and done with.
Spectacular !! Places like this could keep you taking pictures for a month. Fav
