Kamchatka February dreams...




The trees on this picture are Erman's birch trees. Below is a close up picture of them from Kurile Nature Reserve, and also, using the tag Erman's birch you can read my other stories of this amazingly beautiful tree, my favorite tree.



And below are more views of Kamchatka peninsula...



... and Pacific ocean in February...

    3. Usually, the first bears wake up from their hibernation around the end of March.

      You should check with Kronotsky Nature Reserve about the visiting that area and for up-to-date information.
