Kamchatka is the size of California but has only 130 kilometers of roads. All of these roads are clustered around Petropavlovsk, about where San Diego would be. All other travel (keeping with the analogy – in central and northern California) has to be by plane (few) or MI-8 helicopter or something they call an ATV but we would call a tank. Flying over this big empty place, the scene is only wetlands, tundra, braided streams, and meandering unconstrained rivers. Free of roads and dams, this is the perfect environment for salmon swimming upstream to spawn.Buy This Image
