Trekking Day 2 – Russia part 5

The first night at camp was an excellent experience. The sun low and the air was cooling when we began assembling our tents. Thankfully there was not much wind as we started a fire, cooked our meals, and enjoyed our dinners. We all slept well, and woke up to a beautiful morning. The day’s trek had varied terrain and many good views.

As the evening approached, we came upon an open area with a fire pit. Our limited maps and information led us to believe that a more official established campsite existed soon after this. In retrospect the fire pit must have been the actual campsite, because the next section was a walk in a steep valley covered in rock that pushed us against the water. The skies got darker and our bodies wore out. We located an open spot where we could clear enough space to camp for the night. Thankfully, we were able to all camp together and sleep well that night.
