Road to Baburhan
Pond near the mountain
Trees in the water
Fragrant field of buckwheat
Boulders on the slope.
We have reached considerable height.
Stones, rocks and trees of strange forms are around.

I am going among the fantastical rocks
The day turns into evening.
Heat is over, and light breeze is pleasant.
After climb we are near the top, at the delightful grassy site with yellow flowers.
Fields far below look like squares of different colors...
Pines on the top
Evening. We look at plain from the mountain
Colors of sky
We stopped for night here, near the rocks.
Their forms remind of shaman's faces
One day we stayed at the top. We were inside the clouds...
No chance to see the great view from the top.
Pine on the slope
We begin to descend. Mist is around.
Way down - to go out of clouds.
Down the mountainside
The pond that we have seen already.
Farewell to Baburhan.
