21 October 2013. Only in Russia! Now, HERE’S a Place to “Sit and Think” (Amongst Other Things)

00 Little House in Kara Tyurek meterological station. Altai Mountains. RUSSIA. 21.10.13

______________________________

This is the “little house” for a meteorological station in Kara Tyurek in the Altai Mountains (it’s 30 klicks (19 miles) away from the nearest village, Kucherla (Ust-Koksinsky Raion. Altai Republic. Siberian Federal District). It’s the highest-altitude weather station in all of Russia! It’s at 2,596 metres (8,517 feet), in the Belukha Nature Park. I’d not want to have the “hot trots” in a raging wind or snowstorm, that’s for certain! How far is it from the main housing, in any case? Is there a window in the back to “admire the scenery?” Perspirin’ minds wanna know…
