The Mongolian Steppes On 8 Aug 20188 Aug 2018 By Sarnian AlbatrossIn Mongolia, ZavkhanLeave a comment Erdene Zuu Monastery. First lunch together. View from the edge of an extinct volcano. Time for a dip? Sheep being hung. Seeing how efficiently the sheep was killed and cleaned was fascinating and every part really was used. Archery practice. Horses. Note the unusual saddles. I could ride forever and not get bored of the scenery. Some cabins we visited. Lots of yak and cow hybrids to be found with their shaggy coats. Getting ready to go. Rascal, the horse I was riding. Our guide, wranglers and drivers. There were so many different kinds of grasshopper. Sunset Another sunset since there were so many beautiful ones. Bare back riding. That isn’t a smile, it is a grimace of pain due to Rascal’s boney back. Looking at where we had been. Nothing like a campfire while watching the sun go down. We met this gorgeous bundle of fluffiness.
