This weekend I spent in Arhyz, western mountainous area in Caucasus.
This region contains green, covered by pine-trees and beech-trees forests mounts and hills, reminding Italy and Bulgaria.
Also, it has vast areas of rocky mountains
and green rivers. This is Zelenchuk river.
The root the this name means “green”
Strong, wide and wild;
its color contains both sky blue and emerald-green shades
…like the color of my eyes…
The road to Arhyz is in very good condition.
You can race there, at 100-
140 km at curves, as there
are no cars on weekends there.
This time the only obstacle on the road were
herds of horses and
Shepherds are taking them
on alpine pastures for the the summer period.
and wild flowers
Thyme in the wild
are emanating incredible smells of paradise, health and wild love…
This is wild geranium
Several years ago I planted several roots in my garden
Are’t they beautiful in my favorable flowerbed?
Arhyz is rich in berries
Local population prepares all sorts of jams with berries
This green marmalade is made of young and soft pine cones. They give you power and best immunity
This is the new ski resort in Arhyz.
It had been built for two years under the supervision of Vladimir Putin,
President of Russian Federation
On the way home I stopped at wild poppies fields
Several minutes of staying there, took all fatigue away
After hours of driving from this beautiful land.
How did you spend your weekend?
With lovely wishes,
