Our first day out of Van brought us to one of the best campsites we have had. After the day riding around the eastern side of the lake, we were on the road to Kars and passed through the city of Muradiye. We were told by our good friends, Katie Tibbetts and Stephen Sessions who cycled this area two years ago, about a cool waterfall to stop and check out.
We got there around 4pm, checked out the waterfall which was cool, then found a spot tucked away in the woods away from people and next to our own personal waterfall. It was wonderful and I got to take my first waterfall shower, it felt great.
We had an extremely peaceful nights sleep and a great start to our day to Mt Ararat.
