    Суровый край! Well, что там трудные условия. Хоть первозданная природа сбереглась. Но скоро туда доберется цивилизация. И будет – “как всегда”.

    Да уж первозданная природа навевает какое то романтическое настроение,
    да и то что цивилизация не добралась сюда уже говорит о красоте этих мест.
