Around the Bucegi Plateau
« on: August 14, 2014, 06:11:27 PM »
My girlfriend (mountain goat that she is) convinced me to leave the cosyness of my office and go to the Bucegi plateau last weekend. I took some photos of my sak and I saw that you guys liked it, so I figured I'd post a few more photos from my day up high:

At the bottom of the cable-car: You didn't think I'd climb for 6 hours to get to the plateau, right?  :whistle:


Babele - The crones: A rather popular rock formation:


The Carpathian Sphinx - same (yeah, the little one is me):


Looking back on where I walked from:


Weather station gizmo:


Looking down:


My girlfriend went ahead to scout the way (she's the little dot on the ridge):


Me following the track through the clouds:


Whirly plant-thingy:


The TV transmitter (we were in the antenna tower) reflected onto the clouds:


And a few photos from my girlfriend's older hiking trips:

Chamois:


Edelweiss:


My girlfriend climbing:


My girlfriend chilling:

Interesting, first time I've seen an up close photo of edelweiss, they don't look like the printed version on Victorinox knives.  :ahhh

Ocasionally. She is pretty much up in the mountains every weekend. I have neither the time, skills or endurance to do the really tricky paths. I go with her about once or twice per month.

True. The current one is very stylized.


The older ones look more like the real thing, though
