Ajupuu / Driftwood

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 25 March 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

How can there be such amount of driftwood, when there's no forests in Svalbard? The thing is, that these logs are travelers from Siberian coasts. The passage from there to the Svalbard area takes, roughly, five years and wouldn't be possible without help from polar ice.
Need Teravmägede rannal olevad ajupuud on tegelikult rändurid Siberi jõgede suudmest. Teekond Teravmägede piirkonda võtab umbes viis aastat aega ja poleks võimalik ilma polaarjää abita.

Stunningly beautiful scenery!
I know the 'story of the driftwood' from Iceland, where for many generations this was the only source of wood for the inhabitants after they had felled all the trees on the island ...
