It has already been a month since Kizimen volcano at the Kamchatka Peninsula became active, so that two cordons of the nature reserve turned out to be in the ashy darkness. A special research team on a helicopter had to fly around the volcano to determine its influence on the nature of the reserve.
The Listvenichnaya estuary is also covered with ash.
White lines on the snow are the traces of the recent elks' feeding.
One can see the snow becomes clearer in the North.
