Sandy Pfunder Photos (2009)

Kadirga Village

Page 6


Yayla community of Kadirga, located 15 to 20 kilometers inland from Cayiriçi.  What looks like a light dusting of snow around the houses is actually a carpet of tiny daisies (papatya).  The larger areas of white are unmelted snow from the winter.


The yayla community of Kadirga is home to a unique outdoor ("açık") mosque, which is said to be several hundred years old.  The walls keep grazing animals out of the grassy area used for prayers.


 Villagers transport their dairy cattle up to the yayla to feast on the pasture grasses and wild flowers during the summer.  Buildings on the hill in the background are the yayla community of Kadirga. 


  There are hundreds of different types of wildflowers that bloom on the yayla.  This is a small sample from Kadirga.


Kadirga:  it's very common for mornings on the yayla to be bright and clear, and then for the fog to roll in for the rest of the day.
