This trip to the Caucasus Mountains began with a train andof surprise. How do you like the situation when a train driver comes to you and says: “Excuse me, please, could you help me”. This is the mattress he asked for from the top shelf. I precipitated immediately. Somehow these people are more accustomed to see in another role. Well, okay, apparently they are also different.
Just before my release in Tuapse, talking to a neighbor. When he saw me taking notes in a notebook, he wondered if I was a writer. And after trying to convince me that he saw me somewhere on TV. It's nice however, I am already recognizable! Although the box did not show me (showed a year later). But I am always ready to give an interview about my life.
No matter how trite, but immediately after the train andfriendly hugs, I trudged over to a wild beach to warm up, swim and breathe the sea air. I was swimming, oddly enough, in splendid isolation, apparently because the water had not yet warmed up.
My friend, a local resident, kindly agreed to take me to the mountains of Tuapse, and in particular to the town of Two Brothers the next day. Unfortunately, he is a busy man, otherwise we would also be on Mount Turkey logged in The height of the mountain Two Brothers is small, about 1000m. But to be honest, after the winter sitting at the computer, the rise was hard. While I was thinking, not smoking and not alcohol kill us, but hypodynamia. Although it is straightforward to write a separate article on this topic, encouraging people to move more, and to travel in particular. My friend, though he said that we very quickly went and I was a good fellow, he himself complained to me that he was not tired at all ... Here they are elks of the Caucasus Mountains! They go for hours and do not get tired. So that I lived!
From the mountain Two Brothers the view of the Caucasus Mountains opens: Semiglavaya mountain, Mount Semashko, Mount Fisht. Unfortunately, it was cloudy, so not all the slides were clearly visible. But the village of Anastasievka, where we started from, was clearly visible.
Mountain Two Brothers has two done, therefore, has such a name. At the tips it is good to stay for the night. But this was not our case.
The return trip was longer and more interesting. In reality, those who go differently lose a lot. I remembered this route and now I can reduce those who want to go on a hiking trip to the Caucasus Mountains, or at least to the Tuapse Mountains. So, on the way back from Mount Two Brothers, I practiced in photographing waterfalls on a tripod. An interesting effect is obtained.
And then we got into a beautiful canyon - highgorge, at the bottom of which flows a mountain river with small waterfalls. That's where we had to climb. Sometimes jumping over, sometimes grabbing all the limbs by the ledges.
In a couple of places, I even wanted to go to the toilet - the stones are wet and slippery, and at least a few meters to fly, but I would have to collect the bones later. It is good that in some places there is a rope.
After the canyon, the views of the other side of the mountain Two Brothers - the rocks - opened. You look and think, and not whether to get carried away by climbing? Beauty!
And also once again offers views of the Caucasus Mountains. It is difficult to take away the eye.
Another pair of waterfalls. Although along the way they met a lot more.
And then, returning back to Tuapse, I was happy and pleased after so many impressions, fell down with a temperature of 39. And I missed the trip to Semiglav Mountain and Grachevsky Crown. Having lain a few days, I pulled myself together and went to village Renaissancewhere my wife and my friends were waiting for me.
