Szczeliniec Wielki

So, last weekend I took advantage of not-so-bad weather and went to the mountains. It was around 0*C, foggy, humid and hiking up was a bit tricky due to slippery path. On the top of Szczeliniec Wielki the visibility was really low, just up to 15-20 meters but snow with wind made for some interesting sculptures. :)


Adrspach-Teplice Rocks

This autumn (yes, it's still 2015) I was for the second time in so called Rock City (polish Skalne Miasto) in Czech Republic. It was a lovely hike on a warm, mostly sunny day, ended with a fried cheese and 2 hour ride back home. I was there for the first time in 2012, but photos still wait for some form of inspiration.

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! :)

Table Mountains

This weekend, on Saturday, I took a quick trip to the Table Mountains, to Szczeliniec Wielki. Table Mountains is the region I like very much. Peaks are not very high, so you don't have to be in a very good shape to climb them. Forest region is magical with all the rocks and paths between them. This was my third time there. I actually hoped for a little more cloudy weather, but the day turned out to be quite sunny and warm, so no foggy photos that day. ;)

To see this view, you need to climb 665 stairs, but it's definitely worth it. Beautiful both summer and winter (though climbing there in winter can be quite dangerous). The path starts in village Karłów, where you can park your car, and is about 5km long.

Firstly you just climb stairs in the forest (with some rocks for company) to reach height, then you walk more between rocks, sometimes the path gets very narrow, so I wouldn't advise it for someone with claustrophobia. Good boots are a "nice to have" thing because even during summer, the moisture from the rocks is quite strong so path is always wet somewhere.
