International Expeditions:
Yellowstone National Park - 2002

Summer 2002 our friend and colleague Michael Brody from the Montana State University invited us, three teachers from ECOSYSTEM Field Ecology Center to visit Bozeman (Montana) and Rocky Mountains nearby. This was not a real expedition, but in Montana we join with our old friends with whom we feed mosquitoes four years ago during Chusovaya river expedition (Ural Mountains, Russia). On the way to Bozeman
Workshop in the hot spring The main region of our "environmental education expedition" at this time was Yellowstone National Park, that situated only 50 kilometers from Bozeman, where both Michael Brody and Montana State University lodged.
The most part of our workshops and discussions during this expedition were conducted extremely close to Nature - mostly in the hot springs, creeks and rivers !!!
During short breaks between conferences in the river we admired the beautiful views of the local landscapes. Fortunately it was something to see: boiled water gushed forth from under the ground, bison crossed the road, grizzly-bears pastured at the river valleys.
It was very difficult to return to school...

Girls and Geysers

Rafting with friends We met our American friends who visited Russia 4 years ago, and they arranged a short exchange rafting along one of the local rivers. It was approximately the same, but the water was warm, there were no mosquitoes, no tents, slipping bags, camp fire and bodyguards. But it was river, mountains and friends !
To have more sensation we climbed on the Rocky Mountains peaks by cross-country vehicle. It was so pity to travel in the conditioned car instead of hiking 10 hours under the mountain sun with full backpack ! Investigating alpine vegetation
Workshop in the forest cottage Finally our last workshop we were forced to conduct in the extremely wild place: no electricity, no computers, just us and mountains !
In spite of all these troubles we finished our expedition successfully - agreed to arrange next American expedition to Russia next summer.
See you later !
