Photographer's Note

This was taken from a small hotel in downtown Minle, a tiny town in Gansu, near the foot of the Qilian Mountains, at the northern edge of the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau. A few km from Minle is the Horse's Hoof Temple, a Tibetan Buddhist grotto temple carved out of the side of a cliff, as well as other small temples and rock sculpture sites. However, most tourists - though not terribly many - visit these from the larger town of Zhangye, about 60km away, and we were told by a local that the last foreigners to come to Minle had been there five or ten years earlier. Whether or not this is in fact acurate, I do not know, but there certainly are very few visitors to this part of the region.
