A Walk through the Woods in Siberia

Walking through the forest in Siberia

It feels crazy to be in Siberia.  It has always sounded so remote to me and so, so cold.  And it is both of those things (especially during the winter on -40 degree days).  But from what we have seen so far it is a fantastic place in the summer!  We spent our first day walking in the woods and picnicking along Lake Baikal.  A clear blue sky and the freshest air you can imagine.  A great change from China.
