This trip to the Caucasus Mountains began with a train and with wonder. How do you like the situation when in the car suits you and says, “I’m sorry, could you please tell me help. “This is the mattress he asked from the top shelf. I fell into the sediment right away Somehow these people are more accustomed to see in another role. Well oh well, apparently they are also different.
Just before my departure in Tuapse, we talked with a neighbor. Seeing that I made notes in a notebook, he wondered not I am 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 is me did not show (shown a year later). But I am always ready give an interview about your life.
No matter how trite, but immediately after the train and friendly hugs, I trudged onto a wild beach to warm up, swim and breathe sea air. I was swimming, oddly enough, in proud alone, apparently because the water has not yet warmed up.

My friend, a local resident, kindly agreed to drive me to the mountains Tuapse, and in particular on the Two Brothers the next day. TO Unfortunately, he is a busy man, otherwise we would also go to Mount Turkey logged in The height of the mountain Two Brothers is small, about 1000m. But I will say honestly, 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 a straightforward separate article to write on this topic, urging people to move more, and travel in particular. Friend my, although I said that we very quickly went and I was like well done, he himself complained to me that he was not tired at all— they are elks of the Caucasus mountains! They go for hours and do not get tired. So that I lived!

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 way back was longer and more interesting. Really those who go different, lose a lot. I remember this route and now I can reduce those who wish to hiking in the mountains of the Caucasus, well, or according to least in the mountains of Tuapse. So, on the way back from Mount Two Brother, I trained in photographing waterfalls on a tripod. An interesting effect is obtained.

And then we got into a beautiful canyon – a high gorge, below which flows a mountain river with small waterfalls. That’s where we and had to climb. Sometimes jumping over, sometimes grabbing all limbs protrusions.

In a couple of places, even in the “toilet wanted” – the stones are wet and slippery, and even fly a few meters, but then the bones would have to collect. It is good that in some places there is a rope.
After the canyon, views on the other side of the mountain Two Brothers – on the rocks. You look and think, and if you do not get carried away climbing? Beauty!

Another pair of waterfalls. Although along the way they met a lot more.

And then returning back to Tuapse, I am happy and contented after so many impressions, fell down with a temperature of 39. And missed trek to Semiglavu mountain and Grachevsky Crown. Lying a few days, I pulled myself together and went to the village of Renaissance, where I my wife and my friends were waiting.
