Photographer Sally Mack toured Mongolia's Gobi Desert in August 2012.
An unusual amount of rainfall in the Gobi had turned it green and fragrant with wild onions. Continuing rain resulted in a rainbow arcing over the desert.
The photos in this exhibit include: the Gandan Buddhist monastery outside Ulaan Bataar, one of the few that survived the Russian crackdown on religion beginning in the 1930s; sand dunes; Bactrian camels; the Flaming Cliffs, where so many dinosaur bones were discovered; the Hustai National Park; and a portrait of Duujii, a woman who offered shade, a breeze, and vodka when they were sorely needed.
