Day 55 part 4

All 3 of us were really enjoying the beautiful views. Which varied from grass land with swamps to forest tracks with rocky steep descents

After a nice track going through a forest we came across a plateau were two locals were sitting next to their horses.
They were scouting the horizon with there binoculars.







Terry asked them what they were looking for. Than I heard the russian word for.............No not again.........WOLVES
They explained to us that wolves had killed one of their two dogs that night.

Wolves?

Back in the story where the apparent lightning strike had killed the cattle-----just prior-- there was a picture posted of a 'wolf' that evidently had been captured? That 'Wolf' looked very much like the animal that we call "coyote" here in central Utah ? We don't have any 'wolves' per se around here--I think 'wolves' are much larger animals? As there has been no mention of 'coyotes' in the story I'm curious to know whether "wolf' is just a term being used to describe either animal?

In the living room of the Kazakh farm one wall was full of photo's of wolves killed by hunters in the snow.
The puppy in the cage was a lot bigger than all the coyote's I have seen.

If that's one's expression when things don't work out as planned then nothing in this world can throw you off.
Excellent. That's the spirit that moves mountains.

Hey crew, I have a question. In the post #1897 by Prutser in the top photo on the left in the mountains - is that a glacier? Looks like it on the picture but is it a real McCoy?
Awesome job on river crossings I admire your skills

Yes it is a glacier.
If you are interested check out Google maps you will find a lot of pictures of those glaciers over there.
(near Kuray)

I have been checking them out with my binoculars and could stare at them for hours.

I was just chilling in the hotel back in Aktash - waiting for Rod to arrive and for Prutser beamster and terry to return.

Nothing much was happening to me while this was going on - except I has some soldering repairs done on a wiring section that was playing up.

At this point - all the action was with Prutser amd co about 50 miles away from me

That stream they are crossing in the last couple of pictures sure looks like a glacier stream, like so many where in Alaska.
