Hike to Snieznik

In September 2017, during my few days off from work I took a hike to Snieznik mountain (1426 m a.s.l.). It was a cold, foggy day, but I just love walking through a forest in a thick fog.

Bystrzyckie mountains

So this Sunday I took advantage of a lovely, spring weather and decided to go hiking. I picked up Bystrzyckie mountains, as this is the region I rarely visit. The weather was amazing, just recently I was still wearing my winter jacket. The amount of snow was a little too much though, I ended too many times up above my knees in the snow. Photos aren't anything special, but here they are..

Jizera Mountains

Ahh so much photos, so little time. '-.-

Here are few shots from my last mountain hike. Getting fit for Bulgaria trip next week. :) 21 km in 5 and half hour, not so bad. Plan was for 24 km, but I was feelin' kinda tired, so I shortened it up a bit. The weather was rather cold and windy but I deliberately chose that over sunny Sunday to have more space on the track.

Karkonosze (Karkonosze Mountains), Poland@2013

     Late in the 2013 I went with some work friends to the Karkonosze National Park (Polish: Karkonoski Park Narodowy). It is a National Park in the Karkonosze Mountains in south western Poland, along the border with the Czech Republic. On Friday evening, in the pouring rain, we took our first hike to the Strzecha Akademicka mountain hostel to spend the night there. In the morning the weather was much better.

On the Saturday, we went to Śnieżka (1,603.30 meters a.s.l. (5,260.2 ft)), after that we stopped for dinner at Luční bouda (Czech Rep. side). Quite nice place but overcrowded at that time. Then we continued our hike on Polish-Czech Friendship Trail. Weather got sunny and windy and the views were breathtaking. Mały and Duży Staw lakes looked amazing from the top of the trail. The Park is located in the highest part of the Sudetes.

We spent the night at Odrodzenie mountain hostel. Sunday welcomed us with huge fog and visibility just over couple of meters. We walked in it for about half a day, following our trail leading to Szrenica mountain (1362 m a.s.l.) from were we went straight down to Szklarska Poręba city.

Owl Mountains

Here are some pics from my short hiking trip to the Great Owl (polish "Wielka Sowa"). When you start from Przełęcz Walimska it's really easy to get to the top (which is 1014 metres in altitude). You can see the path in pink colour.

As you can see below, the weather was sunny and warm (well.. for the autumn), but also windy and partially foggy which gave the nice touch to some of the photos. Enjoy! :)
