The Dacha in Winter: A Snowy Day in Pictures

April 14, 2012

The ice might be melting in Yaroslavl, but it’s still snowy in Сахараж (Sakharazh) at Galya’s dacha! Galya, Natasha, and I went cross-country skiing and explored the frozen river, plus I got to experience the winter version of the Russian banya–which involved rolling “naturally” in the snow. Yikes, that was cold! Here are the photos from our last adventure (even the banya ones are G-rated, I promise!):

    I love the photos Sarah! Thanks for sharing. 🙂 I’m impressed you did the polar bear challenge of rolling in the snow there too!
