In Western Mongolia

Kazakh men ride Bactrian camels

Warm and Wooly

Mongolia 2014

I read that the dromedary camel looks as if it had been designed by a committee. But the Bactrian was designed by the hand of God. It is a beautiful creature…as beautiful as a horse and that is the pinnacle of beauty.

When you ride this animal, you sit between its humps and the warmth of its body heat and thick wool coat keeps you snug.
