[chuck] in Kachin State, Mawning River, Other, Shinlonga

As 2009 draws to a close, I reflect on the view that I was provided every morning as I crawled out of my tent to start another day of forest inventories in the Shinlonga management area (see The Last Stake). Doesn't get much better than this. [NOTE: We set up our base camp on the bank of Mawning River.  The field crews and I hiked in 2 hours from the village, while the tents, food, and bags were brought up by boat].
