road with clouds

During the northern summer of 2003, I was hypnotised by views like this one on a daily basis.

With three horses bought from a nomadic herder, a friend and I rode from central to western Mongolia, covering over a 1,000kms over a two month period.

Using locally made topographical maps and our handheld GPS, we traversed the endless rolling steppes, rugged mountain passes, flooded rivers and occasional sand dunes – all without a guide.

I loved it so much I ended up staying in Mongolia for two years!
