We all had had a ball at the ski resort and I made friendships that I know will last long after I head home next week. Saying goodbye was beyond hard but I made it through the long farewells yesterday and I will do my best to fill all of you in on the last few days of my time there. I can't tell you everything of course, but I do want to show you a bit of a picture diary of my amazing trip to the waterfall on Mt. Pardědn. It was breathtaking in every sense of the word. LaVerne and I were huffing it all the way to the top as we climbed over perilous bridges, rocks and logs. But check out these amazing views!
|This was only the starting point of our expedition! So much|
beauty before we even hit the trail.
|The bridges most certainly did not meet any sort of safety standards but all the |
wobbly planks is what made it even more exciting!
|Watch your step! Its a long way to to the bottom!|
|I thought this gnarled stump was really cool in a creepy sort|
of way. The forest (which is what all of the Czech's call the
woods) was littered with these types of fallen trees.
|This was one of the few bugs that actually posed for my camera. |
Thank you bug!
|Lush doesn't begin to describe all of the flowers and plants here. |
Simply gorgeous shades of greens, yellows, pinks, blues and purples were
dotted across the landscape.
After that long, tedious hike we all needed a cold drink and a snack so we stopped at the pub right by the trail and had a well deserved meal. This is my Briell and Bramorácky. Which were both excellent. The Bramorácky are basically potato pancakes with all kinds of seasonings including a healthy dousing of garlic. Oh the starchy goodness!
Now that I have reliable wifi and a little bit more time on my hands, I really will be able to post more about our camp experience. Keep your eyes peeled for more info!
Ahoy!! (Translation: Goodbye!)
