Excerpt from Overland to India, Vol. 2 of 2
Just as we were setting out on February 19 a small caravan arrived from Khur on its way to Cha-meji. Its leader warned us most emphatically not to cross the great Kevir bay, which would certainly be under water in some parts, and wh... erein any case we Should quite ruin our camels. Ah, well, we thought, we shall see when we come nearer, and we marched on in good but cold weather (388° at seven o'clock) and under a sky streaked and mottled by small white clouds in quite the same regular arrangement as the small ridges and lines in the sand of a Shallow lake. Small dwindling rain-furrows ran towards the east-north-east, and on the right we left a small longish pool formed by rain water. Beyond the eastern point of the range of hills on our right now appeared another higher range with snow on its crest, called Kuh-i-pusht-i-badam, while to the south east the country was quite flat and open, and to the east south-east was seen a hill called Kuh-i-rabat-i-khan.
