English

26-Nov-2006 -- Эта точка была уже второй за этот день. Нам удалось подъехать к ней примерно на 1,5 километра. Далее путь лежал через поле и лес. Мы подошли к точке, когда уже смеркалось. Точка находится на выгоревшем краю леса. Горелые деревья вовсе не украшают пейзаж. Сделав необходимые снимки, мы вернулись к машине. Примечательно, что температура воздуха во время прогулки была –27 градусов по Цельсию.

This point was our second DCP that day. We could approach the point by car as far as 1.5 kilometers. The further way ran across wood and fields. We reached the point when it was getting dark. The CP is located at the burned forest edge. The scene of scorched trees is least appealing. Having took all the necessary pictures we returned to our car. There was one remarkable circumstance – the temperature was minus 27°C.
