English Narrative

Рассказ по-русски

07-Aug-2004 -- В эту поездку по Алтайскому краю мы решили закончить точки расположенные на 54-й широте.

Погода не располагала к длительной поездке, поэтому мы сделали только две точки, проехав 1000 км за одни сутки. Точка расположена в 500 м от проселочной дороги идущей в непонятном направлении. Эти 500 метров пришлось идти по густой тайге мокрой от идущего дождя. Подойти ближе 70-ти метров к точке можно, но из-за густой кроны деревьев отказывается работать GPS приемник. Выбрали приметную Рябинку на небольшой поляне и, оберегая фотоаппарат от дождя, быстро делаем несколько снимков. Фотографировать четыре стороны света нет смысла, вокруг сплошная стена густой тайги.

English Narrative

07-Aug-2004 -- In this trip across Altai territory we have decided to finish points located on 54th parallel.

The weather was not conducive to a long trip, therefore we have only done two points, having driven 1000 km in one day. The point is located within 500m of a country road going in no clear direction. These 500 meters it was necessary to go on a dense taiga wet from an ongoing rain. To approach closer than 70 meters to the point was possible, but because of the dense tree canopy the GPS receiver refuses to work. We have chosen a lush tree in a small glade and protecting the camera from the rain, we quickly made some pictures. To photograph four sides there is no sense, around us was a solid wall of dense taiga. The hunt goes on.

Coordinator's Note: Unfortunately, this visit is classified as "incomplete", since it does not meet the current photo requirements of two clear photos taken within 100m with no visitors visible.
