Dust storm, western China - March 9th, 2009

Sand from a dust storm blows over the westernmost parts of China’s Xinjiang region, below the Tian Shan Mountain Range.

Xinjiang is the largest political subdivision of China, accounting for more than one sixth of China’s total territory. The Tian Shan mountain range marks the Xinjiang-Kyrgyzstan border at the Torugart Pass (3752 m).

Across the border, in Kyrgyzstan’s Naryn Province, the deep blue of Lake Issyk Kul stands out amidst the snow.
