14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Local kids join us on our trek to the basecamp of Gunung Tujuh, Sumatra, Indonesia.

We traveled as far as possible with public transportation to start our hike of Gunung Tujuh. Because this was in the middle of Sumatra, this meant a long walk from the end of the road to the start of the trail. As we strolled through small farming communities we attracted a lot of attention and companions.
