Photo taken by @stevemccurryofficial // Sheep and goats have worn paths on this mountain in the Hindu Kush Afghanistan as they move towards grazing land. They seem to defy gravity as they climb up incredibly steep rocky surfaces and move over ledges which are almost too small to see from below. I shot this picture near Pul-i-Khumri. #Afghanistan #HinduKush #Pul-i-Khumri @TurquoiseMountain by natgeo
