Dont Drive On Me (18 pics)

This is an impassable road that is located between the cities of Syktyvkar, Ukhta, and Pechora in the republic of Komi, Russia. In the beginning of the road, there are only some small pools of water but after a few miles the pools become so large and deep that they are impassable.

The 'mud' is actually peat, which usually has a permafrost layer that keeps it firm enough to drive on. With increased temperature from more traffic (engines) and global temperature increase from radiative forcing (global warming), the permafrost line is deeper, resulting in more 'mud'.

Gravel won't work because it will just be absorbed by the peat and drawn downward toward the permafrost line.

I have travelled that road. The worst part is when trucks flip because one side sinks, and the other doesn't.

Thanks for the info, Pete. You would still think transport trucks would opt for another road.
