24-Jul-2006 -- Going to Polar Ural we decided to visit the next confluence of course. The nearest and suitable confluence was 67N-65E for us. On the first day of our trip we did it! We got off the train on Polar Ural station. In 2 hours of going on foot we stopped for dinner. While one part of our group was preparing dinner we went to our confluence. Distance to point was about 3,5 km by GPS. But tundra is tundra :) It was very difficult to overcome bogs, low bushes and swarm of mosquitoes, but in 1,5 hour we reached the confluence! To return back to camp was much more difficult because we had no strength. In more than 2 hours we had a dinner

Polar Ural is a excellent place, but sometimes bogs, mosquitoes and bushes are insuperable obstacles.
