On the top of Krasheninnikov volcano.

I just got back from Krasheninnikov volcano.

My shoulders and legs are sore from the overload of climbing up and down. But there, from a single point I could see half of Kamchatka peninsula: from volcanos near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the south to Klyuchevskaya Sopka in the north. I will tell you later about marmots that live in the harsh climate of Krashennikov volcano caldera: to record their population was the main reason for this trip.

But for now, I wanted to share with you a view from the top of this volcano: behind the northern crater you can see Kronotsky lake with islands on its surface, and farther away, on the very horizon, Kizimen volcano continues its eruption.
