Photographer's Note

This photo was taken from a train when I was traveling towards the Gobi desert in September. When I left Ulaanbaatar it started to snow but after reaching Sainshand it was warm (15 C) and no trace of snow.

In 2018 the total number of population of Mongolia was 3.2 million people and 66.5 million livestock. About 30% of all households in Mongolia lived from breeding livestock. Due to the severe 2009 2010 winter, Mongolia lost 9.7 million animals, or 22% of total livestock.

The photo shows the contrast between one car on the road and hundreds of animals on the pasture.
