Mountains and Climber, Tibet, China, 2004

A climber looks over the peaks of the Kunlun Mountains in Tibet's Chang Tang Reserve. This forbidding range in the Northern Tibetan Plateau is buffeted year-round by strong winds, bitter cold, and scant precipitation, suitable habitat for only the hardiest of plants and animals.
