Photographer's Note

A section of the 'little' Gobi Desert, known as "Elsen tasarkhai" sand dunes, can be seen in the background. You can even hire a camel, & pose for photos, if you wish! It had actually rained the night before, & was still overcast. The nomadic herders of Mongolia pitch their tents (which they call 'gers') wherever they can find a little grass for their livestock. Westerners usually call them yurts, but they are the wigwam shaped, tepee structures of the reindeer people further north on the Siberian border. Transport in these parts for the nomads, is on the back of a camel or yak, (when the grass disappears), to a new location. This particular ger camp had a motorbike to round up the wandering livestock.
