Lost in a Cave’s Beauty…

Recently I traveled along what was once the Silk Road. Of course what remains doesn’t reflect the grandeur of ancient times, but with a little help from Google, a compass and friendly locals, I was able to locate a few gems (big ones!). Traveling from east to west, they are Maijishan, Mati Temple and the Mogao Grottoes.

Maijishan @ Tianshui, China

Mati Temple @ Zhangye, China

Mogao Grottoes @ Dunhuang, China
