We are back from our >1800 km road/field trip. We drove for 2 days, conducted fieldwork for 3 days and then drove back over 2 days. We had to get back b/c Byamba has to prepare to go back to Colorado State U to begin classes on Monday.

Neil looked good when we left UB on Aug 21, but he was a dead man walking. We waited almost an hour to cross this bridge, as the family who keeps it in working order was busy building a new ger. As we watched and waited, several more travelers – on horseback, motorbike, car and truck – accumulated on either side of the bridge. Finally the pressure must have been too great...

our last extended field excursion went off without a hitch. No major mishaps or illnesses to report. Well, I did catch the Tengri bug.

the main portion of the 2010 field season went out like a lamb yesterday, no Mongolian pun intended. we traveled the Millennial Road to check out a site I spotted a few weeks ago and look for other sites that might help fill in a part of the northern portion of our climate network. on the third viewing from afar, it looked better than the first two. however, what we could not see was a fence on the eastern end of this rocky, elevated valley nor the chained gate on the dirt road leading into the site:
