Mooncakes and Rice:
Qionglai Mountains. September 20, 2015: In a state between waking and dreaming, I sensed movement in the tent; then the hiss of the lit stove. I pulled my sleeping bag to my forehead. All too soon, my husband, Dave Anderson, passed me a bowl of oatmeal, and I had to sit up. The motion triggered the rolling of water drops down the tent wall. They quickly gained speed, merging into cascades and shooting to the ground.
