We took a hike in a Cappadocian Valley. It was not an easy hike. We had to ford streams, crawl over fallen trees, scramble up and down slippery hills. Some of us did face plants in the muddy water, got caught on thorny shrubs and stung by stinging nettles. Some of the guys fashioned walking sticks from fallen branches and we helped each other along the way. It was tough but so worth it as we really bonded on this hike.
