Do you remember that I said in my last post that our next trip is to go up to ca 500 above sea level mountain? Kopparen is the name of the mountain. 5 kilometer is the distance from down to top. Are you ready now? Hope you are wearing a jogging shoes, coz it will be a long journey.
If you look closely at the picture behind the trees, you can see an antenna on top of the mountain. That is our destination.
So here is the trail. It is not allowed to drive here for public, so we are going to walk and walk and walk uphill.
But don't forget to look around, so you wont get bored. Flowers everywhere.
Another look at where we are going , so we will no loose the tract.
Don't forget to pick and eat some wild berries to quench your thirst.
Time to get some rest and drink water. My oh my, I am already tired after walking half an hour. But, I am older than you, you know:)
Now, maybe we need to fill our bottles with more drinking water?
Now, we are half of the journey after walking uphill about an hour. As you can see at the back, we are not far away from our goal.
Now we can look down where we came from. Beautiful, isn't it?
And this one? Really eye catching!
How about this flower?
As you can see, we had gone a long way to the top.....
More flowers to see along the way...
Don't forget to enjoy the view....
At last we are now on top. And its getting colder. Better to put on your jacket too:)
Do you want to eat on this table made from a huge rock? I am sure you are now hungry too.
But let us take a look of whats on top of this mountain. I believe this is a radar.
Looks like we are on top of the moon:)
Here are the antennas that we saw on top of the mountain before we began our mountain climbing.
And that is how it looks like on top of the world!
It's like flying in an airplane. Only here you can feel the cold wind saturating every inch of your body.
But before going back, we have to take some rest, coz now my body is really aching after 2 hours of climbing to this mountain.
See the beauty around.....
Can you see the cross on the other side?
How about this thing? Reminds you of something? It looks like a woman giving bitrth to me:)
Then back to the trail again, this time the other way around. Can you see that cottage there? We are going to take a rest again there, coz my feet won't go anymore.
Oh, I hope someone will carry me home later. I don't want to walk for one hour more.
But no choice, and guess what's on the trail. A baby snake crosssing our path. Hope you won't scream. It does not help.
And look who is watching us:) A squirrel on a tree!
At last we are now at the parking lot. But these busses are for horses. So we better look for my car.
And here it is, waiting for us. Hope you enjoy our mountain climbing:)
Next time will be boating! So, I hope you are not seasick. Bye for now!
