Aksu to Kashgar

Aksu to Kashgar

Xinjiang

China

July 1, 2017

Highway 314, a modern road, runs 286 mi (460 km) southwest from the city of Aksu to the city of Kashgar.  It takes almost five hours by car.

It’s a colorful drive.  The Tianshan mountains to the right. The Taklimakan desert to the left.

And what colors!

Have you ever seen orange mountains?

Me neither.
