The Amazing Underwater Forest of Lake Kaindy
What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.
The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.
The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.

2 Out Of 3 Falls Match: CM Punk Vs. Colt Cabana
ROH Punk: The Final Chapter - August 15th, 2005
At the end of the Summer of Punk in Ring Of Honor, the time had come for CM Punk to say goodbye to the company in order to join the WWE and fulfill his newly signed contract. In a match against Colt Cabana, Punk’s farewell was an emotional one, as even the hardened heel showed raw emotion upon stepping through the curtain to the appropriately placed Bouncing Souls song “Night Train”. It was one of Punk’s best matches, and considering it was his last official ROH match, it was absolutely perfect.
