On the pages reserved for reports concerning MOTHER EARTH NEWS' tours, we usually try to show you scenes of the exotic places that the trips can take you and tell you about a few of the things these exciting expeditions have taught us. But this time, for a change of pace, we decided to share travel memories—some glimpses of the trips abroad that our intrepid adventurers have taken in the past.

And—of course—you can add to your treasury of memories by joining any of our 1982 travel offerings: "In Search of the Yeti and the Snow Leopard," a trek into Nepal's remote Arun Valley that lies between the first (Everest) and third (Kanchenjunga) highest mountains in the world (January 25 to February 17, 1982; cost, $2,920; deposit, $300) ...
