Still thinking about this incident...
And the ravine is something I don't understand at all. Probably someone can point me in the right direction.
A creek or a ravine is filled with snow during wintertime. In the Ural winter lasts from October to May. A ravine accumulates more and more snow to the point of not being a ravine anymore. The search party had to dig 2.5 to 3.5 meters deep where they found the bodies at the bottom of the ravine. I guess in Februray of 1959 a lot of snow had already fallen und filled the ravine. In may 1959 it was still filled with snow although the snow started melting.
So my question is: How did the 4 bodies magically drift through the masses of snow to the bottom of the ravine?
Did they dig a hole, a den, some kind of dugout with their bare hands untill they reached the bottom of the ravine? Or wasn't there just that much snow in February 1959? The latter possibilty seems highly unlikely to me looking at the pictures taken by the first search party. There was plenty of snow on the slope of DM and plenty of it on the ravine slope.
So how did they get to the bottom of the ravine? Did someone dug a hole and buried them there? Did they dug that hole themselves?
Did they even trigger a non-starter (unexploded bomb) while digging a hole? Yes i know, there is this bed of twigs... It doesn't look destroyed.
Short story long: Why were they found on the bottom of the ravine? That (among many other mysteries) just doesn't make sense to me.
Any ideas, suggestions?
