Steppe eagles and canyons

One of the "must see" places here in Kazakhstan is CHARYN CANYON so that is where we headed yesterday with a group of friends.
 On the way we stopped off at a falconry museum where I got this fab picture of a 
STEPPE EAGLE.....it was HUGE and very beautiful!!

 Charyn CAnyon is said to be Kazakhstans Grand Canyon! I was thinking well it's not going to be that good.....and of course it's nowhere as big as the Grand Canyon.......but I was surprised how spectacular it was!
 After viewing from the top we then went down into the canyon and walked through between the rock walls.


 Eventually you get to the river at the bottom of the canyon.....boy was it running FAST....you would not want to fall in!
 The only problem with getting to the bottom was.........you have to walk back out and it's up-hill! So worth it though!
