As some of you know, I recently took a trip to Oblast, Russia, which words really can’t describe this trip. I have so many great things to share with you from this trip but for now I have to share this one with you. It’s from Lake Baikal and we spent time traveling on this lake on a yacht for over 600 miles.
This shot is of our captain as he tests the water! Let me explain something to you, Baikal’s average surface water temperature is 55F. Average depth of lake Baikal is 2500 feet. The deepest area of the lake is around 5700 feet. So yeah, it’s pretty fresh, or freezing, depending on how you look at it.
