That’s What We Call An Interesting Job

Posted on January 15, 2011 by team

Russian geologists’ story about their work on the Chukchi Peninsula. The pictures are old but still have some spirit of that wonderful place.

The group of geologists moved by off-road vehicle.

In spite of the fact they worked in summer, sometimes it still snowed.

Looking at the map… As all the scenery is similar there, it’s very easy to lose the way.

The Chukchi Peninsula is a perfect place for any fisherman. The fish was biting extremely well.

    It appears to me that one day in any village there would be a week. ;)

    Great photos! Too bad they threw a track in the middle of the river.. that must have been difficult to fix.

    The Russian “geologists” were mapping the terrain so military strategerists could know the best location for military bases from which to launch invasion of Alaska.

    Come on, everyone knows Russian “geologists” were spies. Look on a map of the world and you will see the Chukchi peninsula is just across the water from the USA state of Alaska (Sarah Palin can see it from her home).

    The article said the photos were old. Does anyone know the people in the expedition? Where are they now?

    Thank you for posting. There is a magnificence in the country.

    Thanks Boritz.
    I tried both Coordinates but Google maps did not recognise either of them. I would really like to follow all the postings as I don’t know Russia but not sure how to follow your Coordinates.
    Help Please.

    Good job and nice pictures of the landscape.
    But unfortunately, probably, one day after those geologists all beauty of nature will be lost.
    Because humans will create mines and industrial factories to get out coal, gold, metallic ore or ant other minerals from the depth of the land. Then all rivers will be polluted and wild animals will die.

    So, we are living in a very unique period of time: on the one hand we have knowledge to get resources from the land and use it, but on the other side it is not our problem to think about pollution of the nature and to think about limitation of usage of those resources. But we don’t care!

    We must be very happy!! :)
