The stone birch is the main tree of the Kamchatka Peninsula. These trees are unbelievably enduring. They had already been full-grown when Cossacks came to this place for the first time. And now every summer thousands of tourists admire this beautiful tree.

    Old, dense and resistant, it thrives in it’s harsh environment not so unlike Ironwoods of the Sonoran Desert. This tree is very beautiful with snow. Thanks for sharing these photographs.
