On the Grasslands of Inner Mongolia

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Evelyn Boettcher

The Xilamuren Grasslands of Inner Mongolia are not yet green in early May, but the contrast of colors makes for a stunning landscape. We had just hopped off of our horses to walk through the tall grass. A storm is brewing overhead. Approximately one hour later, a sandstorm rolled across the grasslands.

Location: Xilamuren Grasslands, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
