For the fifth time, we, the patriots of Murman, held the Ski Track of Heroes near Partizansky Island, where two partisan sabotage detachments were based during the Great Patriotic War. The track around the island, 13 km, was amicable. And in the evening we were pleased with the starry sky, and Aurora, who all the time tried to look into our tents and dugouts.
