As you already noted, I am a big fan of Ajar Varlamov‘s photographs. This post with his images is already the 30th. The previous photo post with Ajar’s pictures was dedicated to the season shift from summer to autumn in Yakutsk, Russia. If you didn’t see it, you need to check it and come back to this post to continue following cold weather progress in the city considered to be the coldest on Earth.

Ajar Varlamov (his posts), whose many photographs you’ve seen previously, has two big passions. Initially, it was to carry his Nikon camera all the time and everywhere. A few years ago, his second passion became Marisha, Yakutian laika (dog breed originated in Yakutia’s Kolyma area). Guess his major habit… Any ideas?.. Right, as you might have noted, that’s his daily dog walk on the field called Zelenyj Lug (Green Meadow). So, if you are his friend, you can see his daily local nature pictures. Hereby, please, enjoy how…

In above pictures: my 3-month puppy, Ogonyok, on the left and Ajar Varlamov‘s 4-month Marishka on the right. Ogonyok is a boy, Marishka is a lady In the morning I texted the sms to Ajar saying that I had received the PetLawn from my Los Angeles friends, who invented and started producing that product. I said, if he would wish to see what it was, he might come to my place. He replied, “Sure. I will come and with my puppy, Marishka.” I, “Cool. I didn’t see her…

Yesterday morning I had a short walk with my Yakut laika puppy, Ogonyok. Weather was not extremely cold in Russia’s Siberian city of Yakutsk. A little bit foggy and with -40C/-40F. Take a look at below pictures. No navigation on rivers in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in winter. All waterways are frozen till next April. Next navigation will start in June and last through September. A view of the Yakutsk city river port that is actually not seen in the mist.

Great news! As someone said, «Oops, we did it again!» We launched the new website dedicated solely to the cutest Yakut laika dogs. Our dream became true. The resource is supported by Arctic Travel LLC, Lena Sidorova (a cynologist), Ajar Varlamov & me.. The Yakut laika is the unique Yakutia-originated breed of Siberian huskies. They’ve got blue eyes. They can run long distances for ever. They are the best hunters and herders’ helpers. They are so wonderful and beautiful that they apparently deserve your attention. Let’s make them…

I have friends, Ajar Varlamov and Lena Sidorova. They have a common friend, Anastacia Longinova. Last winter, actually in March, they travelled on dog sleds along the Lena River to the famous Yakutia’s Pillars (so-called stone trees south off Yakutsk). A sort of dog sledding holidays. The winter travel with Yakut laikas (a type of Siberian huskies) took 4 days. They overcame nearly 300 miles. Yup, it was extremely cold and windy, but it didn’t affect them. Guess what memories they’ve got now. Unforgettable! See more winter photographs.

Here we go! Ajar Varlamov’s photo report on his recent dog sledding along the Lena River to the Lena Pillars National Park, one of the biggest in the Siberia’s Republic of Yakutia. Major heroes in his pictures are, certainly, Yakutian laikas (representatives of the famous Siberian huskies). 24 photos

Just a few Ajar Varlamov’s photographs of Yakutian laikas (a type of Siberian huskies) taken in the course of his recent dog sledding to Lena’s Pillars.
