Early days of september. summer is over, temperatures are already cooler, and the amount of daylight is shortening everyday. fall is the time to look for a fresh new pasture. we cross path with this family. their entire life and belongings are packed in the back of that truck. they are heading north to their winter camp, a 200 kilometers ride where the pasture is better that time of the year. the cattles are following behind, lead by the elders. walking, they will get to their destination and join the rest of the family in a week or so. through the dunes, hills, desert, no need for a map, they know this area like the back of their hand. i have learned over the years that mongols have an incredible sense of directions, the main requirement to survive as a nomad.
