Kalmand protected area

A lonely road cuts across an ancient Persian river valley surrounded by mountains near the Kalmand Protected Area located in Yazd Province, Iran. This arid area ranges from 1,200 to 3,000m in altitude and gets less than 200mm of rain but it thought to have been much wetter during the first half of the Holocene between 5,000 to 10,000 years ago.
