Spring might be some time away but I am already thinking of places I’ll want to visit once the snow is gone and the landscape starts blooming. So, as a break between writing-related posts, I’m showing my 5 favorite photos of flowers made in 2018. If you’re in some cold-gripped area while reading this, let’s hope it’ll warm you up.Continue reading
With the year coming to a close, I am doing a “best of” highlight of this year’s hiking.
An article in the local newspaper had reminded me of several things that are obvious, yet people are still blind to them. Climate is changing – and maybe way too much. And there’s no better proof than the spruce forests – what’s left of them, anyway.
Continuing the way I did it in September, this post will be a summary of my October travels with several photos.
This post will cover the four-day stay in Slovakia from the end of the month, with a lot of photos.
Going into mountains reaching 1600-2100m ASL in late September is tricky. Weather can go full summer or full winter on you. In my case, it did both. I was prepared for the cold part but less so for the warm part – my summer gear was already deep in the closet and I took thicker socks.
Before I get back to reading/writing-related posts, I hinted that I wanted to show a bit of where I was in September. In this first part, I’ll share a bit about two hikes with the four-day stay I had at the month’s end coming in a separate post soon.
This is something I’ll try to post possibly monthly, a look back at some of the mountains I visited and are, in some way, memorable to me. At this point, I have a list of almost 80 candidates but I am not sure how many will pass. These posts would be a mix of personal stories with photos and some ‘hard facts’. Maybe some interesting things, should I know about them.
I’ll begin this with ‘Lysá hora’, the highest peak of Czech ‘Moravskoslezské beskydy’ mountain range.
