Far Views | Kashmir

I took these photos of men in shakira boats removing hydrilla (aquatic weed) from Lake Dal in 2009 in scenic Srinagar, Kashmir in northwest India. This troublesome weed also grows in the Colorado River in Texas and presented a challenge to those of us who competed in the Colorado River 100 ultra marathon canoe race this past Labor Day weekend.


  1. So are you saying hydrilla is your new favorite plant?!?!?

    • Well … let’s just say it’s the plant I love to hate! 😉

      • Nice pictures of the Kashmir’s river!


      • Thanks, Mortuza.
