Day 3. 2004-07-07.
Between Olgiy and Khovd.

Notes: Night time temperature 3°C. We stop to get water from a clear, fast-running stream. Also stopped at the end of a lake to see swans, cormorants and ruddy shelducks.

We go through a pass - 2649m, luckily it is not steep, and it is not raining. We had a few "water hazards" today, which were no problem - everyone just drove through them eventually.

One area had millions of low ground-cover purple flowers, which gave the whole plain a purple haze. We passed 14 Bactrian camels in a field. Our tires crush various herbal plants, and they smell good. On one good stretch today we got up to 50 k.p.h. but our average is much slower than that.
