After talking about the Rocky mountains and Tianshan mountains in last entry. Do you want to know what’s at the foot of these two big mountains? Actually, it is not a news topic. I introduced two towns , Hemu and Ouray in one entry named “Sketch & Oil Painting”. They are all at the foot of big mountains. Now, let’s look at something else near the Rockies and Tianshan .
Menggubao and India yurt: Small, simple and easy to move
Menggubao is the most common houses for “Kazakh” and “Tuwa” who are living at the foot of Tianshan mountains. They are two Chinese ethnic groups of nomad. The main business for living is raising cow, sheep and horse.
Not only Tianshan has Menggubao. In the Rocky mountains, one day I found an india yurt that looks similar to Menggubao. How small our world is!
Wood cabins: Strong and Warm
There are another kind of house in Tianshan. It doesn’t have specific name, I just call it wood cabin. Most likely, you can be easy to find them around north of Tianshan such as Hemu , Fuyun and Baihaba. The same cabin you also can find in the other part of this world. The nearer you get close to Rockies, the more you will see the small wood cabins.
Let’s see how does wood cabin look like in Rockies!
Luxury houses: They are built for rich visitors, do not belong to mountains in my heart.
Special Foods: They are all good!
Worship God: Church & Aobao
This church is located at the bottom of the Rocky mountains. I have been there twice during spring and winter.
There is an Aobao looking at Thianshan. Aobao is a symbol from buddhism.
Horse: The best friends to people who are living at the bottom of Tianshan mountains.
The life is not boring: Great artistic creations from daily life down the Rocky Mountains.
Even the whole town is the great work of art. Central City is one of my favorite city at the foot of Rockies!
The story of the Rockies and Tianshan are far from ending (to be continued)…
