Worlds longest Canadian run and slide on Lake Baikal

Yep, I think I’ve completed the worlds longest Canadian run and slide on Lake Baikal, the deepest and most voluminous (has the most water) of any fresh water lake in the world.  Making a trip from Irkutsk to Listvyanka by bus in mid April the lake was completely frozen.  So, doing what any right minded traveler would do, I checked that the ice was relatively safe then went exploring.  Jumping over fresh water rivers in the ice and sliding around was awesome!  Of course, when you go to do the worlds longest run and slide on the worlds deepest lake you inevitably going to eat it…lol
