It has been a few months since Russian photographer and blogger Rostislav Mashin has visited Kamchatka Peninsula, but the memories are still fresh. Recently, he has published his photos of Kamchatka in his blog.

Klyuchevskiy National Park was his first stop on the way. The National park was named after the highest active volcano of Eurasia – Klyuchevskaya Sopka.
