This next picture is taken of the grasslands in Mado county in Golog prefecture. It was around -12C / 10F that morning, but the bright sun made it feel a little warmer. The nomad Tibetans in the area were just about ready to untie their yaks to have them graze in this area.
This third picture is of a nomad woman herding her yaks through the snow. Nomads on the northern Tibetan Plateau lead difficult lives as the weather is cold and snowy for up to 10 months out of the year. Many of the nomads in this area live in traditional style Tibetan tents.
