    That’s a pretty impressive museum for such an isolated or remote location. The displays seem to be well-lit and presented in a professional manner.

    I wonder if the port was ever used to deliver war supplies from the west during WWII for some of the factories built further south but east of the Urals. Maybe it’s too far east.

    I also liked the snowmobile “monument.” Good sense of humor by someone.

    I was so relieved to find that that dog wasn’t real.

      Me too! I saw that dog’s big eyes and snout and wondered what sort of genetic experiment the Soviets had been up to in the region. . . I’d hate to run into that dog at night.

      Ditto that. I thought it was a good looking dog, but really creepy for some reason.

      Those cranes look like they’re about ready to get up and walk away.

      I’m sure this is a nice place if you’re used to it. But dang, that’s one heck of a lot of snow!
