Travel theme: Outdoors camels on the Chinese Silk Road

This week, Ailsa‘s photo challenge theme is Outdoors.

In 2007, we were on a roadtrip somewhere in China (Western Gansu, North of Qinghai). A long, interminable straight line of road in the middle of incredible mountains that seem endlessly far away.

Although in the middle of nowhere, we suddenly realized there were Asian camels around – did they belong to anyone? There was none around. The camels were hanging out there, moulting, surprised to see travellers, and nonchalant as only camels can be!
