13-Янв-2007 – Это в городе тепло и сыро, а за городом – зима, зима, зима...

Эта прогулка стала продолжением освоения нового для нас лыжного инвентаря. На прошлой неделе таким же способом мы посетили точку 57N°61°E.

Мы решили пройти по маршруту ст.Таватуй – Первоуральск. Мы доехали на электричке до ст.Таватуй и по заснеженным лесным дорогам и просекам двинулись в намеченном направлении. Точка была достигнута, когда уже наступили вечерние сумерки. Это место уже посещали наши друзья-велосипедисты, но в теплое время года. Зимой лес выглядит совсем по-другому.

Входили в Первоуральск мы уже в темноте.

P.S. Отмечу, что начальная точка нашего маршрута лежала в Азии, а конечная – в Европе.

13-Jan-2007 – In this walk we continued to test the scope of our new skis. We’ve just visited the CP 57N°61°E by the same manner a week ago.

We walked by the following route: Tavatuy station – Pervoural'sk. We arrived to Tavatuy station by electric train, and went in Pervoural'sk direction by snowy forest roads and cuttings. We reached the confluent spot when it began growing dusky. This DCP has already visited by our friends, hikers by bicycle, but it happened in summer. The place looks completely different in winter.

It was already dark when we were entering Pervoural'sk town.

P.S. It is worth mentioning that the starting point of our route was situated in Asia, while the finishing point was in Europe.
