Baga Gazarya Chuuluu

The main stop of today was a series of rock formations called Baga Gazariin Chuuluu, which you could loosely translate as 'Lucky Luke desert'. Again, the surroundings could be compared to the deserts in the US, and the granite rocks with the yellow sandy plains in the distance reminded me of the cartoons of Lucky Luke.

It is also the site where two Buddhist monks lived in exile for years, leaving religious texts on some of the walls. We didn't find their graffiti, but we did see the remains of the house they built in the little gorge between the rock formations. The ovoo (rock built stupas) found on everywhere in the area implicated that pretty much every boulder in the area is sacred.

Comparing Mongolia to the USA desert??? I don't think so....NOTHING is as unique as the Gobi!!! Certainly NOT anywhere in the USA....
