Day 5. 2004-07-09. Towards Bulgan.

Notes:We pass a red rock mountain range, with a large marshy area next to the lake, and we see more cranes. Passed a rare road sign (see photo). Some debate about which is the right road to Altai. Two locals assure us we're headed in the right direction, even though it appears we are off the main road.

Drove for miles along wetlands with strange little adobe houses and not a soul in sight. Imp gets stuck coming up a sandy slope when he tries to make a sharp turn in the deep sand.

More eagles, a small quail-like bird, and cranes.

Diesel Fuel : None.
