Western Sunset

I'm standing in a sand dune and trying to catch the light of the sun sinking to the left away from this meadow filled with wind-gnarled pine trees. Every summer several families come out these few miles from town to set up their Gers and camp. They bring their animals with them, which ensures plenty of food and work for the month or so that they stay. In the distance is a small lake caused by the only hydro-electric dam I've yet seen in Mongolia. It powers the town of Tosentsengel when the water runs strong enough.
