The day after we arrived in the Orkhon river valley the rain managed to move on and after noon the sun came out. We drove out to the waterfall via a road that twisted through rocky lava fields and then onto the open grasslands. The waterfall plummets from a river along the grasslands down into a gorge cut through the lava rock. An nice oasis in the middle of the open steppe.
Our bikes for the ride back to camp. I was looking forward to riding the mud bogs, and rocky jeep track that we drove in on. Much better then being a passenger in the van!

Puje and the waterfall.
A colorful Ovoo.
The canadians know cold water!
Cold but a nice location to swim.
Taking advantage of some hard to get grass.
Not a lot of competition for a goat to get this grass.
A cormorant on a rock in the river.
A nice river gorge to spend the afternoon in.
