Nice forest/mountain scenery...looks like aspen groves on mountainsides of my Colorado.

The remnants of Shamanistic culture.  it seems to have many similarities to Native American culture and rituals.  earth as the great mother, feminine energy, living in balance with your environment etc ....

Thanks Muzh!  Well there was a guy there with one of those thick gloves on his arm for protection against the claws looking after it, so i presume at least semi-captive.  You're right though it was massive.  :o

I have seen movies of European Golden Eagles grab an Ibex and FLY to the nest with the Ibex in tow. Yes, massive best describe them.

Edit: Found it.

I have a friend from Altai who recently moved back from Moscow who keeps inviting me to go backpacking with her through the mountains there. Maybe I should take her up on her invitation, I had no idea how pretty it is.

Nice photos. How recent are they?

I was there for the may holidays.  Yes if you have time and the inclination you should definitely take her up on the invitation.  I have a friend who went for 2 weeks, full on camping.  He went a lot further and deeper than we went, and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking, like the Himalayas in parts.
