Mongolia Pictures from the Russian Border to the Gobi Desert

A highlight of the Mongol Rally was reaching the ultimate destination – Mongolia. The journey was sensational, but once we reached our final country, it blew us away. These are our favorite Mongolia Pictures from the Russian Border to the Gobi Desert.

However, on the Mongol Rally, We split up jobs more than usual. When Dave was driving, I snapped some shots and when I was driving, he took care of the video.

Gher Camp


It ended up being a lot of fun changing roles for 5 weeks. One can't be married to a fantastic professional photographer like Dave and not learn a trick or two. While I won't be ditching my day job as a travel writer any time soon, I did enjoy getting behind the lens every once in a while to snap a few moments in the Mongol Rally.
