Frozen Siberia

After all our recent posts about global warming, I thought I’d share a little photo essay of a place where locals would simply be ecstatic over the possibility of our planet cranking it up a few degrees.

I turn once again to English Russia where a couple of brave souls have ventured deep into the cold, bitter heart of Siberia on some type of sick, cryogenic road trip where temperatures dipped to -56 Fahrenheit (-49 C).

The photos reveal some spectacular, unworldly scenery but also a painfully, unfathomable cold. And in the middle of all this, some rather hearty Russians actually enjoying themselves. Except, of course, in the last photo (above) where their bottle of vodka has actually frozen. I didn’t know that was even possible.
