Mongolian Road Trip: Day 1 Sand dunes

Here are photos from day 1 of July travels with Noah in the Mongolian countryside.

Passing through the city into the steppes, our driver Davaa, took us along one of the better Mongolian roads to the Mongol Els (sand dunes). On the way we saw people camped waiting to see some test horse races, a variety of livestock (sheep, cattle, camel, and goats). It was probably the hottest day of the whole trip.

This series of photos ends with a shot of an oncoming thunderstorm...that blew down our tent.
