Mongolia Land of the Great Blue Sky


I stayed in Gers for the majority of the trip.
Inside a Ger, the roof represents the sun and its sunrays.
A nomad we met along the way, he was herding his camels’ home. He was just as curious about us as we were about him.

4-wheel drive came in handy when we drove halfway up a dormant volcano.





Pit stop in a small village.


Meeting a nomad family.



The family home, about 9 family members live in an area the size of my own room.
A small portion of the family, husband, wife and two of their 4 children.




Sometimes it really felt like I jumped in a time machine.

Boys and their Yaks.



Local horse race.

The roads stretch on and on.
Relaxing outside my Ger. Thanks to Rebecca for this last photo.

These are some impressive pictures, especially the portraits. Nice framing too, but I wouldn't expect anything less from the Ross.
