Dinner in the saloon “Last chance” – the flavor of the North American heartland, in an old cowboy style.

I must say that this Last chance – the place is not touristic, it’s actually such a rural restaurant where local people gather, rest… the place is absolutely politically incorrect, beer in one-litre jars provide the raw steaks for you and light a barbecue shelter that each had grilled the way he likes.

Kamchatka: acid lake Trinity

Dangerous the lake is at the top of the volcano Small Semyachik. Namely, in the crater of the name of the Trinity. It attracts tourists with its amazing color — with height of bird’s flight in Sunny weather, overlooking the bright turquoise lake surrounded by black earth. This color give the lake the smallest particles of sulfur that are released into the water from the volcano. If you look at the lake from the surface of the earth, it is impossible to believe that it looks turquoise on top. From some angles the pond seems to be just muddy. The diameter of the lake is small — only 500-600 meters.

The Semyachik volcano is considered to be valid, some scientists believe that this lake was formed as a result of one of the eruptions. The water temperature here is around 30-40 degrees, but the lake gradually cools down. In some winters the surface is fully covered with ice and snow.

In the crater of the Trinity on the shore there is a small black beach, but swimming there is deadly: dissolved in water acid eat through even metal. Prolonged exposure near a lake without a mask can also harm the health. However, tourists are regularly organized not only helicopter tours over the volcano, but Hiking tours on the lake — and even with the descent into the crater to the shore.
