|Alborz Mountains from the hotel|
|Zagros Mountains from our bus|
Traveling through snow-capped Zagros mountains on our way to Takht-e Soleiman and ultimately to Tabriz, we ran into a large number of sheep, sheep dogs, and shepherds. We stopped the bus and had a wonderful photo fest.
We regularly saw herds of goats and sheep as we drove throughout the countryside. It is understandable given that lamb is the most commonly found meat on an Iranian table—and we ate a lot of it. The wool is also used in weaving carpets. But more on that later.
