"Discovering nature discover yourself"
..On the 21st of March 2011 at 2 pm we were driving down the ices of Maloe More – the strait in Lake Baikal between the Olkhon Island and the western shore of Baikal. The head was full of thoughts about how long the drive will take, weather the ice which we will be driving upon for 200 km is strong enough… Of course I was worried, as this was the first ever expedition I organised. I must not forget anything.In a couple of hours, when I reached the open Baikal, the feelings were impossible to fight. The infinity of the sparkling ice lands and the brightness of the sun shining above this serene desert struck the imagination. We were close to our final destination – a small village on the coast. The frozen tundra and the peaks of the Baikal Mountains were coloured cloudy pink with snow sparkles by the last rays of the sun. It was impossible to move the eyes from this endless beauty. But there was no time to relax – we had to move into the houses and get ready for tomorrow’s climb to the peaks. Freeride was waiting…
This was the first day of our first adventure, which later was named Baikalfreeride.
