We are still slow on the catch up of getting photos online. But we do have one of the best galleries to date up on the site now. Western Mongolia was one of the most difficult, most hard on the trucks, most dangerous and most beautiful routes to date. We spent over a week driving off road, sometimes not seeing another human being for 2 days straight. Navigation was left to a compass and binoculars, just like in the Gobi Desert, but since there are mountains in the West of Mongolia the task is just that much more difficult.
We went through extreme cold, some days the tempurature would not get much above negative 18. The ground many days was covered in snow, making the task of staying on the right track almost impossible. A day did not go by that we were not at least lost for a little while. To date however, Bouey and I can both agree that this was hands down one of the most exciting weeks the trip has presented yet. Check out the photos…they do not disappoint.
