Kayukov was part of the Russian Geological Society's expedition that returned to study the remote Russi an region 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle called Putorana Plateau--a magn ificent, uninhabited tableland the size of Nevada, cut by canyons, rivers, wate rfalls and endless flat-topped mountains receding to the Arctic horizon.
