Hey all,

Took a trip to visit a friend in Kazakhstan last month and wanted to share some photos. A really interesting place. The mountain photos are from the Tien Shan mountains, we stayed at an old Soviet observatory that's now run as a hotel by an old woman and her dogs. One of her pups wakes up early to see if any guests are going hiking, and if so he goes with you. Was pretty cool. The desert photos are from Altyn Emel national park - beautiful place, it's an interesting desert landscape with sand dunes and cool colored rock formations. Even threw in some pictures of your humble photographer at work for good measure ;) Enjoy!

Wow! Thanks, rp!

That looks like an incredible trip. All the pics are great. So interesting and different from pic to pic.

I wonder if the camels were fenced in, or just roaming free.

:)

The camels were roaming free but belonged to someone. There was no one around at all but they weren't afraid of people.

Thanks for sharing. Your pictures are fantastic. It's amazing how little we really know, or see of the world.
