A Bactrian camel sits out a snow storm. These beasts of nature are native to the steppes of Central Asia where they have been used as pack animals along the Silk Road since ancient times. They have an incredible tolerance for cold, high altitude or drought and belong to a small group of animals that regularly eat snow to provide their water needs. The latent heat of snow and ice is enormous compared with the heat capacity of water, demanding a large sacrifice in heat energy and forcing animals to eat only small amounts at a time.

It was my second winter expedition into Afghanistan’s Pamir mountains. A five-week assignment in rough conditions and extreme cold. We trekked for three weeks, working on a film documentary on the isolated Kyrgyz community.
