English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

08-Jul-2005 -- Отличные выходные, замечательная погода - лето! Едем на рыбалку и по дороге посещаем точку.

Точка находится в лесу, поэтому фотографии во всех направлениях выглядят одинаково. Лес сосновый. Везде на деревьях сделаны насечки и подвешены специальные конусообразные формы для сбора смолы, которая дальше используется по назначению.

Посещение пересечения 53N 25E оказалось удачным, точку мы определили точно, несмотря на труднопроходимые заросли. Да и рыбалка сложилась удачно - такую щуку поймали !!!

English narrative

08-Jul-2005 -- Excellent week-end, wonderful weather - that's summer! We`re going fishing and visiting the confluence on the way.

The confluence is situated in the wood, that is why all the pictures made from different directions looks the same. It is piny wood. All the trees are marked with the cuts and cone-shaped vessels are hung everywhere so that piny pitch can be gathered there which is used for a purpose further.

The visit of the confluence (53N 25E) turned to be successful, we defined its location exactly in spite of the impassable bush. And the fishing turned out to be successful too. What a huge pike we caught!
