Lake Baikal: Summer 2012

5 1/2 years ago, when I was a young fool, I went on my then first big solo trip to Siberia (Lake Baikal in particular) to help dig a trail system. Little did I know it, this kickstarted my urge to wander off to bizarre places that normal people wouldn't dare go. So without further ado, here is a nostalgiac homage to that adventure.
