Tripped over this article on the Kolyma Highway from Yakutsk to Magadan on the Pacific coast, formerly known as the "Road of Bones". 1260 miles of near arctic circle winding road through mountains, forest & bleak prairies. Once the walking route of prisoners to Gulags & mines during the Stalinist era. Oymyakon, the 'Pole of Cold', just off the highway at about the halfway point (2nd dot from the left on map), has known a low of -98F & an average January low of -58F.
