17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Modern Cowboy Of Northern Mongolia

This was taken in the Darkhad Valley in Northern Mongolia. Animal herding is the main activity there. Whilst many still do it the traditional way on horseback, many are now using motorbikes for the job, be it herding cows, yaks, sheep, goats or horses.
