23-Сен-2011 – После посещения замечательного пересечения N44°E77°, что посреди скал, каньонов, близ реки Или, позавтракали, и выдвинулись с Павлом на покорение N44°E76°… Павел Колесников за рулём, я, Евгений Фигуров, с картой и навигатором… Хорошие дороги, красивая казахстанская степь, Куртинский перевал, опять степь и… точка наша!!! Выехали из Алма-Аты в 7-00, к 13 часам дня посетили 2 точки…

А в багажнике автомобиля Субару полный набор рыболовных снастей! Конечно, на рыбалку! Куртинское водохранилище – это лунный пейзаж! Правда, улов был небогат, но сколько впечатлений! Умопомрачительный спуск к воде, а подъём уже из камней, на некоторых участках выкладывали сами! Спасибо тебе, Субару! Ночью вернулись домой…

23-Sep-2011 – After visiting beautiful confluence 44°N 77°E, which was among rocks and canyons near Ili river, we (Pavel and me) had breakfast and set off towards 44°N 76°E. Pavel was driving, I was operating as a guide, with the navigating unit and the map in my hands. There were good roads across amazing Kazakh steppe, then there was Kurtinskiy pass and the steppe again. And finally we reached the confluence among the steppe. So we left Alma-Ata at 7 am and by 1 pm we have visited two confluences.

And the trunk of Subaru was full of fishing equipments! Certainly we were going on fishing! Kurtinskoye reservoir has moonscape. The catch was modest, but we were full of impressions! The descend to the water was breathtaking, while ascent we made by stones by ourselves at some parts! We were back home at night...
