Nowadays, while working on a new book about Kamchatka I often look through
my photo archives. And I often think about how lucky I was to have a chance to
work in the Valley of Geysers for several seasons in the past. It is a
miraculous place. And the river in the middle of it, called Geysernaya (derived
from word Geyser in Russian), is also miraculous. It is only 12 km long (7.5
miles) - but so much diversity exists along it.
On picture above, a famous volcanologists, V.A. Drozdin, who has worked in this area for many years, is crossing a river.
