Ulaan Tsutgalan Waterfall

Photo documentary of our trip to Mongolian

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!

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 nice river gorge to spend the afternoon in.
