Along our drive to Darhan, we stopped and met a family who lives in a yurt. We parked the car by the yurt and cultures merged. I helped the mother change the clothes of her youngest son. She wanted him photographed in his best.

Then we stopped several kilometers later and photographed another family who were moving their yurt, sheep, goats, camels and horses back to Darhan after spending the summer about 60 kilometers south (near a creek). An older woman steered the five of the camels. A woman I believe to be in her thirties and who was a remarkable horsewoman steered the horses, goats, sheep and other camels.
