We’ve realized that we have yet to document a bit of our day-to-day lives in the field. Below are some scenes from the valley we nick-named ‘Xanadu’ (before we knew it’s proper name). We learned from the man who uses the valley as his winter pasture that it is called ‘West River Valley’. It is definitely a happy valley.
The valley is narrow and natural. You can see below how limited access is to this valley, save horses.
Below is one of the first views we got of the valley – it was a wonderful sight [and site!].
We settled into a patch of forest in the valley bottom. Can you spot our tarp hiding our belongings during the day?
here is our camp site:
in actuality, this really was the Xanadu for the flies!
here is a video of our happy camp site at night, in the Mongolian Wilderness
