May 27, Nalati to Kilo Zero 零公里

Ok, what is kilo zero 零公里? Quite straight forward, it is the start of Du-Ku Highway 獨庫公路, our entry point to Bayabulak 巴音布魯克草原 - if we were to make it there today, rather than taking all the way back to Urumqi to take other route. This is not unusual in Xinjiang by the way, especially the great diversity in landscape and weather, constant road building and improvement and maintenance. Anyway, back on our route.
Although the worry never really did subside, we continue drawn by the beautiful landscapes, ask Neo to stop so we can take more pictures, while Huang Zheng continue to warn us the goal today is moving to Kill Zero, and has to pass the check point - something we all wish to happen but not quite sure.
This one is taken with Nikon D3X, while apporaching Kilo Zero, about to enter the mountain area and can start to see more herds of sheep, cattles and horses, watch the video. This one, a quick snapshot of tress on the roadside, with Canon G10.Another G10 shot on beautiful Nalati. And the video clip from G10, by Pook.Pook was taking picture with her Canon G10, and a snapshot of her.A 4-capture stitch using D3 with AF-S 24-70/2.8G ED.And a G10 shot on the lonely horse. And these two with Nikon D3 + AF-S 24-70/2.8G ED.And this one, with my wife, Pook training her Canon G10, Huang Zheng and Neo slightly below the Land Cruiser in the center of the picture, also with Nikon D3.
