First, the bad news: Altai-2020 is over!
Now for the good news: There’s a Very Big Altai Video in the pipeline! And it promises to be full of super-duper material, and also to be professionally produced and edited. In a word or four – it’s gonna be awesome!
In the meantime, today in this post – a few photographic ‘greatest hits’ my fellow expeditioners have sent me for your viewing pleasure: for those who’ve not been to Altai – as enticers, teasers, to get yourselves there; and for those who’ve been – as nostalgizers. Because – remember – it’s good to have been somewhere and enjoyed it, but better to have been somewhere and enjoyed it and then… to revisit it through photos as it might make you realize you should go back again :0)!
Pheeeew. What a trip! Simply remarkably marvelously fantastic. I think a wait of three or four years, and we’ll be heading back – if the magical Altai energy doesn’t pull us back before ). Perhaps we’ll do the trekking part a bit differently, but as for the Katun bit: that can stay exactly the same!
And that, folks – really – is it. Over and out from Altai-2020!

Как там говорится? "Бесконечно наблюдать можно за горящим огнём, текущей водой и работающими людьми". Так вот, воды на #Алтай много, очень много! Особенно в этом сезоне. И смотреть на эти пороги можно бесконечно долго… Очень Большая Вода. Большая и Страшная Вода… Но всё равно смотреть на неё можно бесконечно долго! . Someone once said: ‘There are three things you can watch forever: fire, water, and other people working’. The water bit: that sure applies to #Altai! Especially this season. So we did: we gawped at those there rapids, not quite forever, but certainly for a long time… Crazy, wild water – but you still want to watch it forever!
And here’s the trailer for the upcoming mega-vid! ->
