Kamchatka, Russia | Where the Salmon Rule, National Geographic Magazine: Aerial Photograph of Khailino

An aerial photograph of Khailino taken on a ride in a MI-8 helicopter between Tilichiki and Khailino, shows the Vyvenka River linking these two communities.  Flying north in Kamchatka, there are miles and miles of untouched tundra, streams, wetland, and rivers like this meandering, unconstrained river that is a perfect environment for salmon spawning.
