ok, 3rd attempt, now in pictures [apparently this PC has a brain worm].
got back from a 7 day, >1800 km field trip. patience tested by degraded dirt roads – roads are 3x worse than the last time i had been on them 11 yrs ago. more later…now a couple of pix.
first evening on the road – a storm warning
3rd morning on the road: a larch gaining autumnal colors in early August [it snowed the night before]
post-funky/real fire somewhere in northcentral Mongolia
last evening on the road – like the first evening, a similar cold snap/front moving across the landscape that included 2-3″ of hail. best of all: the. best. rainbow. ever. (anon., 2010)
