The Lena River is 4,472 kilometres (2,779 miles) long and navigable for about 90 percent of its length. The navigation season lasts 125 to 175 days (longer in the south, shorter in the north). The Lena’s course runs completely through land affected by permafrost. It’s not always winter in Yakutiya

27 November 2012. Our Great Russian Motherland. The Komandorsky Islands (photography by Vadim Gippenreiter)

______________________________

The Komandorsky Islands are located 175 kilometres (109 miles) east of the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East, in the Bering Sea. They’re the isolated westernmost extension of the Aleutians (they’re separated from the rest of the chain by 333 kilometres (207 miles), and the native people here are Aleuts, the same as their relatives in Alaska. I’m told that Aleuts from Unalaska AK flew into Bering Island when HH blessed a church here… that wouldn’t be surprising… after all, Vladivostok is far closer to Unalaska than Syosset NY is…

The above photo of sea lions is by the famous Soviet-era photographer Vadim Gippenreiter.
