Photographer's Note

Lesotho is called the kingdom in the sky. The lowest point of the country is 1400 masl, higher than in any other country! The name means "the land of the Sotho" and the people are commonly referred to as Basotho. The language is called Sesotho.

This was taken from the horseback while riding to an icy waterfall two hours away from my lodge. Here you can see a basotho in traditional clothing. The blankets are necessary as the temperatures often goes below freezing in the winter. Corn seemed to be a popular way of income in this area and I saw several corn fields along my ride.
