Contributor BaBi created this amazing aerial view of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.  The great desert covers much of the southern part of the country, as well as large stretches of northwestern China.  It's known as a rain shadow desert, caused by the Tibetan Plateau blocking precipitation that would otherwise move into the area from the south.  It's the fifth largest desert in the world in terms of land area.  Unlike most deserts, the landscape consists primarily of exposed rock rather than sand.

How's this for an epic motorcycle trip - Mongolia!  The republic in northeast Asia is not exactly known for its roads, but it didn't stop the bikers in this video.  They were able to use their bikes to get across some incredibly varied terrain, ranging from deserts to vast plateaus to forests to spectacular rivers and snowfields.  Throw in riding with herds of wild horses, and you've got a pretty memorable trip.  It also begs the question, what happens if your bike breaks down?
