Wildflowers in Mongolia’s Terelj National Park

This time of year, Mongolia’s steppes begin to turn green with amazing plants.  Large areas of blue iris plants are left by the grazing animals.  Wild rhubarb pops up everywhere.  Wildflowers erupt to soak up the sun.

Cirsium sp.
Perhaps a species of Thistle – Cirsium sp.

On Saturday morning we headed to Terelj for another ger camping trip. We saw an amazing variety of wildflowers considering we were at the park just last week. I have included photos of some of the flowers we saw last week.  I’m working on identification of them.
