It's Travel Photo Thursday and this was taken in Mongolia on the road leading out of Ulaan Bataar which leads out to Khar Khorin.
A cairn ( ovoo in Mongolia, which is mainly Buddhist ) where travellers seek good fortune from the spirits. Walking clockwise around this 3 times then placing an offering (usually a blue prayer flag, however we placed stones ) upon the cairn invokes good fortune from the spirits. A real nice way of starting a journey in an optimistic and positive way. Note the crutches placed there.
This is posted to wish good fortune for all those participating in the Mongol Rally - Dave and Deb from The Planet D especially. My way of wishing you all a great safe journey!
On Nancie's Budget Traveler's Sandbox there's a wonderful photo awaits you. And check out all the other photos that linked-in travel bloggers are posting up today!
