Artek – Articular. Unofficial site of the camp
Program 5 shifts to “Amber” was very complicated, so to go to mystery lake we were able only during the quiet hours (forgive us the absolute is a criminal violation of the regime). Part of the way from hull to the upper gate of the camp terrain, “where no one has gone before…”, it was very problematic. Here managed to trample almost every artukovic – near entrance gate begins the “pioneer” trail to the top of Ayu-Dag. Here are all the normal people go here mostly in the early morning, and we go at noon, on the terrible sun. In the end, the children gave up and just fell to the ground. But the column of cool water poured into them life.
After CAT has become more fun – the road now led exclusively down in the cool shade of the forest. However, to say that there was particularly interesting, it is hardly possible. Crimean forest – handsome, but somewhat monotonous. Suddenly at the next turn in the middle of the forest, he found a grove of Lebanon, and deodar cedars. These trees of the Artek campers is not surprising – in the camp they are on every corner. But such a thick quite a bit, but still in the same place. Our “Yantarnyi” immediately rushed to survey the Botanical phenomenon and try branches for strength. In addition, to the General joy, on the edge of a cedar grove, we found a family of red deer. Not the real thing. The campers then they saddled up. But the horns, they broke some we don’t, it’s still up to us. The ches-word.
The lake was really side by side, twenty yards away. The impression is twofold. On the one hand the incredible beauty of this place: cozy valley, the teeth of the mountains on the horizon, overhanging rocky mass of Ayu-Dag, Golden bushes of flowering gorse. The water surface is entirely covered by a huge sheet of lilies and even some unknown to us odnomomentnoe small things. Transparent, as in the aquarium, the water at the end of the swimming nimble fish, huge beetles and goggle-eyed frogs. But the impression spoil the entire garbage deposits – Bank of the river was literally littered with plastic bottles from under beer, scraps of cellophane and disposable dishes.
Affected by human barbarity and flowers. If white water-lilies have been preserved almost intact, with pink Nymphaeum came the crunch. Today, among the “elite” people from the coast went rampant fashion on a decorative yard ponds. But until them grow to Mature plants, plenty of time will pass! But you want now. And here in a lake – ready beauty. You only need to pull some roots. Therefore, the once-dense thickets of pink Nymphaeum today reminded only a single flower, rising lonely above the water. A little later near the shore of “big-eyed” Artek found some more flowers. They have just blossomed and have not quite surfaced. As the boys noticed them – it is unclear from prying eyes flowers covered the broad floating leaves. To give an opportunity to admire beauty, leader Boris Vorobyov heroically climbed into the huge predaceous diving beetles infested water and with the words “gyulchataj, open face” liberated flowers by covering them on top of vegetation.
Considering that Bob was already naked, wet and dirty, we requested him to take some pictures of flowers lilies up close. The task was not easy. The lake bottom is covered a thick layer of viscous mud, and every step was equivalent to a complex acrobatic trick. But Bob was not struck in a dirt the person (in literal and figurative sense of this expression) did, as you can see, stunning images. As we later secretly confessed our wet knight – this feat he dedicated to his squad and the beautiful co-worker counselor Julia Chernyshova.
