I hope the road ahead this year is as fantastic as the one in the picture.This is the road down from Ooty to Gudalur and one stretch has these awesome towering eucalyptus trees.Its a road traversed a good twenty years or so back so there were parts I remembered clearly, names of places I'd forgotten but remembered the instant I saw a board and there were changes, improvement as well as signs of neglect.
The highlight of the trip was the sighting of a Tiger in the Bandipur forest on 31st evening. Unexpected, by chance and simply spell binding for all of three mintues. This was the first sighting for R and me and the first photo opportunity of the big cat for our friends who have captured the encounter with their brand of unparalled wildlife photography.See it all here.
Have you seen a tiger in the wild?Where did you encounter the tiger and what was the experience like?
