All part of European route E123 that connects the Ural region with Central Asia, spanning 2,840 kilometres (1,760 mi).
These are the roads................................
M-36: Podgorodka – Kostanai – Zapadnoye;M-32: Kyzylorda – Shymkent;M-39: Shymkent – Frontovoy
A-342: Zapadnoye – Esil – Derzhavinsk – Arkalyk – Zhezkazgan
A-344: Zhezkazgan – Kyzylorda
This picture is absolutely beautiful! Any chance you'll offer it to the rest of us?
@pamkstewart Kelly landed near Arkalyk, even farther, 200 mi beyond the upper right corner. The length of the frozen lake is about 10 miles.
@pamkstewart This area is the approximate Soyuz target landing area. Soichi landed near Zehzkazgan, already 100 mi beyond the bottom right corner of the pic.
Welcome back to the earth, Kelly!
wow! don't get us wrong with this picture! We welcome you back WARMLY!
Beautiful ice world! Thx for all the intriguing #spacegeo, Cdr! Congrats on the success of Exp-26...and welcome back on the blue planet ☺
Is this anywhere near the landing area for the Soyuz?
That makes sense. When desert lakes dry up they make huge salt beds which are often white.
My God what an astonishingly beautiful photo! safe journey, Scott.
@PC0101 I think the bull shape is a salt flat when it's dry. Can see tire tracks in Google Earth.
Lago La Amarga, Argentina
@beachton The „frozen“ lake seems to be a lake almost completely dried up, the lakebed soil (and snow cover) is seen here. Deep lakes with water don’t freeze so easily.
