А fairy tale of Demerdji

It’s difficult to imagine a place more mysterious than Demerdji in winter. Clouds hide everything around and leave only subtle silhouettes, which become stronger and fade away as you move forward. At the very beginning the footpath leading from the township dives into a narrow passage between two small trees. They look like little guards, protecting the mountain from uninvited guests and when you walk through them, you feel as if coming into a fairy tale. And it happens the fairy tale doesn’t keep you waiting too long.

Going to the Azov sea!

That’s it! The last working week has ended, which means that the Azov sea is starting to get closer. We have packed our things, prepared our camping stuff, and we’re ready to go. There was such a hurry in our preparation though, that I think we might forget something. Yeah, we will definitely forget something. At least I hope that won’t be anything important.

I will try to find mobile internet in the places we’re going to stay, so the blog shouldn’t fall into deep hibernation state. Lastly, I will show you this Altai landscape, that was shot near the confluence of the rivers Chuya and Katun. Stay tuned!
