Black and white photos of Iran taken in 1999

The trip I took to Iran for the American Alpine Club exchange with the Alpine Club of Iran that I’ve been posting about recently wasn’t my first trip to Iran. I’d also been in 1999. On that trip, I climbed Mount Damavand with Tom Strickler and Abbas Jaffari and visited Yazd, Pasargad, Persepolis, Shiraz, Esfahan, Tehran, and the Caspian Sea, among other places. Here are four of my favorite black & white photos from that trip.
