Farming country, dense forest, picnickers, wild pigs being fed (maybe they should be called tame pigs), rugged, dry, high mountain plains. Tailwind, sidewind. Sun. We are sleeping on the carpets in the mosque meeting room. A beautiful day.

We started today at 100m and climbed to 1500m, and saw the landscape change. The Golestan National Park marked the start of the greenery. And it was dense. Lots of weekend picnickers were out and about, lying on their rugs in the shade, or feeding the wild pigs. Others were cruising down the road with the car windows open and the music thumping.

Then the scenery changed to dry. It was nice to see the transformation take place.

We’re at the top of the high pass. Tomorrow first down before climbing into Bojnurd.
