We've been experiencing the extremes of personal space. Spending some time in the most wide open country we've ever seen was a shock to our systems after being confined to a train car.
The scenery in the countryside of Mongolia is remarkable. Everything is spread out, there are few obstructions, and it's so quiet. Once we settled into our ger in Terelj National Park, we were immediately swept into a sense of calm and peacefulness by our surroundings.
It was so relaxing in the countryside of Mongolia. We had time to hike around our ger camp and take in the views and climb on the granite rocks. We also walked up to a famous rock formation called Turtle Rock for obvious reasons.
Just up the mountain side from Turtle Rock is a beautiful Buddhist temple that overlooks the entire valley we were in.
Throughout the landscape were stacks of rocks and trees wrapped with prayer flags. Seeing the brightly colored flags gently moving in the breeze against green backdrop is an image we will never forget.
I know we've said "this is one of our favorite places" throughout our posts, here's yet another favorite, Mongolia!
