10-Июнь-2007 – Эта точка была найдена в ходе нашего 3-суточного путешествия по дорогам Новгородской и Псковской областей. Мы без приключений добрались до деревни Большой Заход, откуда нам предстояло пройти пешком около 3 километров. Наш путь начался от столба, на котором аист свил свое гнездо. Поскольку никаких тропинок вокруг мы не обнаружили, то выбрали самый простой путь – напролом. Лес оказался очень труднопроходимым и заболоченным, кроме того, он кишел слепнями и комарами. Часа через два мы, совершенно вымотанные, вышли на заветное место и сделали довольно похожие фотографии (фото 1–4). Дорога назад заняла еще два часа. Затем мы продолжили наш путь к озеру Ильмень.

10-Jun-2007 – This point was found during our three-day journey on the roads of Novgorodskaya and Pskovskaya oblast'. We easily reached Bol’shoy Zakhod village; from here we have to walk about 3 km. Our way started from the power pole with stork nest. We didn’t find any paths around and chose to come like a truck as the easiest way. The forest was very difficult to traverse and boggy; moreover it was swarming with gadflies and mosquitoes. When after two hours we came to cherished spot we were completely done up. We took similar shots of surrounding area (photo 1–4). Our way back took another two hours. Then we continued our journey to Il’men Lake.
