Posted on April 11, 2014 by tim

Salekhard is a city on Russian North, was founded in 1595 and has a population 46,650 people. It has schools, colleges, a few factories and a port. However if you take a snowmobile and run sixty miles away from the city one can see the life of people in the wild like the rain deer owners, living in traditional houses called “Chums”.  They author of the photos, Ivan, has took a guide with him, as he didn’t risk going on a snowmobile all alone deep into the wilderness. “Staying there is awful, they drink blood!”,  Ivan says that this is what he was told by a policeman when went there.

A sort of a winter road in that area.
