Kazakhstan’s Little Grand Canyon

Greatriver-in-background day for travelstop-dangerous-for-life1ing east of Almaty for 3 1/2 hours to Charin Canyon, Kazakhstan’s little Grand Canyon.  That meant 7 hours in our Mercedes passenger bus and four hours of taking in the scenery.  It was worth it, especially ending our day with getting shashlik at a little town about an hour going back over washboardy roads and isolated highway.  I saw wild purple irises, red poppies, yellow buttercups and wild yellow tulips along the side of the road.  Fun to be with friends and take the panoramic view in.
