In a fight for survival!

Every time I pass this Erman's birch grove - which first meets furious gale-strength winds often with rain and snow, coming from the Pacific ocean - I understand why this region, 300 miles of beautiful scenic coastal line from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Ust-Kamchatsk, is practically unpopulated. It is the kingdom of true wilderness. But nature doesn't reign here in leisure, on the contrary survival requires so much strain and effort that it creates the outstanding forms of life, strong and powerful.
