Kenozersky National Park. Pictures.

I visited Russia this summer, for the first time in 7 years. It was wonderful to see my family and friends.
I am from north of Russia, Arkhangelsk region. Winters are long there, but I love that place. As soon as you cross Arkhangelsk region border it's all woods and swamps. :)
We went for Russian Traditional Crafts Festival to a beautiful place, 
Kenozersky National Park (Russian: Кенозерский национальный парк) is a national park in the north of Russia, located in Kargopolsky and Plesetsky Districts of Arkhangelsk Oblast. Since 2004, the National Park has the status of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.


I hope one day I will stay there for a few days to get pictures from all around the Park.
The series of pictures, taken at Morshchikhinskaya, a villadge on the way to the Park:

There are many lakes in the park.

We spent one final day of the Festival at at the park. It was a lot of fun. My son played Russian games, kissed 4 girls, even I jumped over a fire.
Ok, make fun of me:

This people look more suitable for the occasion:

    Some people are blessed with much much talent. You are one of those rare people. Your photography is stunning and your crochet artistry is gorgeous. I look forward to your posts. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photographs; I am sure you miss your friends and family back home. When I look at your photos taken near Philadelphia, I too miss where I grew up as I am a former Philly girl.
